Fee: € 90

Objective
The abuse of the internet by money launderers is a significant threat. Cyberlaundering, i.e. internet-related money laundering, has become an efficient way to hide the proceeds of crimes. New advanced technological solutions of electronic payment and non-cash transactions have considerably reduced the risk of seizure and forfeiture of money that has been illegally obtained by criminals.

Key topics

  • The risk of money laundering on the internet
  • Challenges in investigating and prosecuting financial crimes on the internet
  • The new OECD international anti-money laundering (AML) standards, the review of the Third EU AML Directive and the proposed new EU Directive on attacks against information systems (“Directive on Cybercrime”)
  • The involvement of the internet industry to tackle cyberlaundering
  • Cyberlaundering: recent trends and intelligence tools
  • This seminar will look at criminal money flows on the internet, at the main international and European standards and legal instruments in place and at the key role played by the exchange of information between the private and public sectors.
