In  the rush for the digitalisation in the financial services and regulation sector, customers are gaining a higher level of convenience and processes in their systems.

Sasha Slevec, Financial Crime Lead, Australia, Featurespace, discussed with Mike Rourke, Chair of the Finance and FinTech Committee on how fraud and scams work especially in the very fast paced finance and fintech industry.

Our speakers also shared how 'trust' is the common key factor in how these scammers execute their plans on unsuspecting victims.
