Dubai – MENA Herald: Business defence and cybersecurity specialists Applied Intelligence, part of the global technology and defence group BAE Systems, will host a forum dedicated to revealing the latest threats affecting the fin-tech sector, focusing upon corporate compliance and anti-money laundering (AML) strategies.

Set to take place on Monday 10 October, the forum brings together local and global experts including Tariq Bin Hendi, the CEO of Emirates NBD Asset Management, Tom Keatinge, Director at the Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies and the Royal United Services Institute, and David Pije, Head of AML and Sanctions for the Enterprise Risk Management Group at First Gulf Bank.

The forum, titled “The Compliance Front Line”, is part of a global series presented by BAE Systems that aim to tackle key cybersecurity and financial crime trends, issues and remedies. The Dubai event will create a platform to discuss and address a number of key issues concerning businesses in the UAE, the region and around the world, including counter-terrorist finance, optimising anti-money laundering investments and global best practice for due diligence.

Ed Doyle, Head of Compliance at BAE Systems said: “Preventing money laundering and terrorist financing is high on the agenda of governments and global financial regulatory bodies, and failure to comply puts financial institutions at significant risk. It is critical therefore that the commercial and financial sectors deploy preventative measures to protect themselves from being used as a means to money laundering.”

It is vital that financial institutions stay ahead of regulatory requirements with robust and proven AML and compliance technology solutions.

The forum will take place in the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa 8.30AM to 12.45PM on Monday October 10th, and is open to senior executives who can register here.
