Worldwide: Your Business Exposed: Key Risks in a COVID-19 World

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented opportunities for financial and cybercrime. International law enforcement agencies, including EUROPOL and INTERPOL, have commented on the increase of multiple forms of economic and cybercrime since the outbreak of the virus, including tax evasion, fraud, money laundering, bribery and corruption, phishing emails and cyber-attacks and even modern slavery. Whilst governments have been distracted with an international health crisis, and economies have been weakened by a global downturn, criminals will undoubtedly have been acting with a new sense of impunity. As the world moves out of the pandemic and more resources can be directed towards redressing the malfeasances committed during COVID-19, this session will consider which areas law enforcement agencies are likely to concentrate on and where the most significant associated risks to business may lie.
