Webinar – Assessing Financial Crime Risk factors in firms’ Ownership Structure: Results of project DATACROS
Criminal organizations increasingly adopt legal companies and complex cross-border ownership structures to cover their illicit activities, and to conceal the laundering of corruption proceeds. Project DATACROS, co-funded by the European Commission, DG Home Affairs (ISF Police 2017-AG-CORRUPT-823792), and coordinated by Transcrime, has developed the DATACROS tool, a prototype platform which can support financial crime investigations and risk assessment by detecting anomalies in firms’ ownership structure that can flag high risks of collusion, corruption and money laundering. This tool has been recently presented and discussed at meetings with national and international networks of law enforcement agencies and anti-corruption authorities. This webinar will provide a unique opportunity to:
- Present the key findings from the project, and the results of the analysis on corporate ownership anomalies across European regions and sectors;
- Demonstrate the DATACROS tool for assessing risk of corruption or other financial crimes;
- Discuss with Practitioners how this tool could be useful for financial crime investigations and risk assessment.
