Keeping Crime Out of Gambling 2019

Event Phone: +44 7734 215166

  • January 22, 2019
    9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Now in it’s second year, this award nominated conference is designed to help gambling operators manage compliance issues and ensure that they are not subject to criminal activity through effective fraud prevention and anti-money-laundering strategies.

The agenda will cover a range of topics including fraud prevention, anti-money-laundering (including updates on the 5th AML Directive), political pressures and looking forward to regulatory considerations of new technologies.

The content will allow business to build the adequate knowledge and management systems to manage risk, comply with the law and retain customer trust.

Regulators have tightened procedures asking companies to show them how their systems work, not just tell them. We’ll be looking at how to manage this review procedure and avoid regulatory action.

  • Senior Manager at gambling operators
  • Heads of Compliance at gambling operators
  • In-house lawyers at gambling operators
  • Lawyers in practice who support and work with the gambling industry
  • Compliance consultants working with the gambling industry
  • Anyone involved in risk and fraud prevention
