ACAMS Europe: Impact lead to join panel on data analytics in financial crime prevention

Data analytics plays an increasing role in anti-financial crime efforts. After all, it’s through connecting disparate datasets and analysing the results that anti-financial crime professionals can often uncover red flags and patterns of suspicious activity.

Company data is critical in this kind of analytics – because you cannot join the dots between companies, individuals and addresses if you don’t know what ‘dots’ (ie legal entities) are out there.

In this context, OpenCorporates’ Chief Impact Officer Rebecca Lee will speak about the role of company data in data analytics, and how this can help fight financial crime, at the ACAMS Virtual Europe Conference on 19 May at 13:10 UK time. 

ACAMS, or the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists, is the largest international membership organisation for anti-financial crime professionals. 

Rebecca will participate in a panel entitled Cracking the Code: Data Analytics in Financial Crime Prevention alongside:

  • Francisco Mainez, Head of Financial Crime Risk Data & Analytics, Wealth and Personal Banking at HSBC
  • Elizabeth Henry, Head of Compliance and Money Laundering Reporting Officer at Revolut

During the panel session, Rebecca will draw on her career in forensic and investigative analytics, where she helped organisations to deal proactively and reactively with financial crime issues, and her recent experiences working alongside organisations around the world to leverage OpenCorporates’ company data. 

This includes Global Witness and the recent Anti-Corruption Data Collective investigations into the fraudulent use of Covid-relief funds.
