Keeping Crime Out of Gambling 2020

Event Phone: + 44 7734 215166

  • January 23, 2020
    9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Now in its third year, this 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 Gambling Commission has made it very clear that compliance with both the letter and spirit of regulation is not optional. High profile fines keep on coming, and not just from the UK, regulators across the world are tightening up standards.

The conference content will help your business to build the adequate knowledge and management systems you require to manage risk, comply with the law and retain customer trust.

  • 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
