The rapid pace of technological change and globalisation have profoundly transformed the scale and way we work today. Individuals and organisations in the UK reported losses of £1.3bn to fraud and cybercrime in 2021 with reported instances of cybercrime spiking by seven times, rising from 39,160 to 289,437.Cyber security experts predicted that in 2021, there would be a cyber attack incident every 11 seconds double the amount from the previous year and mainly coming in the form of ransomware and the predictions for 2022 follow this trend. As the ongoing pandemic has seen more of us working from home than ever before the setting is ripe for exploitation. The humble home router has become the surface attack, and the ‘work at home’ employee the target of choice.Today criminals will target any business regardless of size by exploiting weaknesses both internal and external. Understanding the weaknesses in your organisation is the best way to protect your business against fraud and cyber risk allowing you the opportunity to implement effective controls mechanisms before it’s too late.This session will consider the cyber security risks in business for practitioners and reviews the practical steps that can be taken to reduce the risks at the earliest possible stage.KEY FEATURES

This webinar provides an essential anti-money laundering refresher and update for accountants.
It includes a comprehensive overview of the UK's legal and regulatory framework and summarises the key controls and procedures required by practitioners for compliance with the UK's AML regime.
The webinar also brings accountants up to date with recent changes to laws and regulations. It considers the attitude and direction of travel of the UK authorities regarding money laundering and economic crime post-Brexit and it reviews the main findings of the UK's National Risk Assessment 2020. Recent headline cases are discussed and the need for accountants to take a proportionate, risk-based approach is emphasised throughout.
At the end of the session practitioners will be aware of the threats both to their businesses and to themselves as individuals posed by organised criminals, terrorists, fraudsters and corrupt businessmen and have a good understanding of how best to manage them.
