So the next wave of the Panama Papers is reported to be due. Does the Isle of Man need to be concerned? From my dealings with Money Laundering Reporting Officers, Compliance Officers, lawyers and those involved in the financial services industry they are all highly professional, heavily regulated and well versed in AML procedures. That doesn’t mean anyone should be complacent.
Whilst the disclosure of more revelations may be whetting the appetite for some, the issue that appears to be overlooked is how so much electronic information is so easily obtainable. Social media, unsecured email, how you use the Internet at work (and at home) and how you store it, all contributes to this massive cache of data which people like myself will call upon in our investigative work.
I feel passionately that a considerable amount of cyber crime can be prevented by education and to that end am trying to help fiduciaries and local business by offering training. I have two 2 x hour workshops to be help at The British Embassy, Douglas, Isle of Man between 1400-1600hrs on the 10th & 16th May. Titled ‘Confessions of an Internet Investigator’ delegates can pose questions in advance of the session. I’ll also take you through some techniques and tools that I use.
I also have places available on the 2-day immersive Internet Investigations course for Due Diligence at The Claremont Hotel, Douglas on 12th-13th May. Primarily focused on financial services, anyone in business that uses the Internet to find information will benefit. Laptops are provided.
For 48hrs only I am going to reduce the workshop price by 50% to £25 offer will end at 10am on Friday 29th April. The alternative to a lack of understanding could be catastrophic.
Dates not suitable? I can come to you, I’ll bring the laptops, you provide the WiFi (and the coffee).
