Many institutions have a regulatory requirement to complete due diligence on all their applicants and customers. The main source of publicly held data is on the internet and certain skills and techniques are required to investigate this effectively.
The Internet and its supporting technologies are host to an increasing importance for human activities from communications and commerce or online gaming and dating. With more and more individuals and businesses embracing the Internet and making it part of their lives digital footprints are being left in the surface and deep web. It is fair to say that today there is a plethora of data floating in cyber space and to an online investigator the Internet has become a vital tool as web browsers, search engines, social media monitoring tools have all developed with far more capabilities to assist in the retrieval of information – if you know where to look.

Digital technology continues to transform and disrupt the world of business, exposing organisations to both opportunities and threats. In this age of dependence on IT systems, effective IT security is a business imperative. Knowing more about key IT risks and how to manage them is important for all businesses' success now and in the digital future.
Richard Chambers, former IIA president, wrote: “The technology risks we face today are increasingly complex, and a sophisticated, well-thought-out approach is required to manage them.”
Today criminals will target any business regardless of size by exploiting weaknesses both internal and external. Understanding the weaknesses in an organisation is the best way to protect the business against cyber risk allowing the opportunity to implement effective controls mechanisms before it’s too late.
This session will explore how businesses can help manage the risks and threats from cyber enabled attacks through improved prevention and detection.

International tax for the past 2 years has been dominated by two developments; BEPS 2.0 and Covid 19. The war in Ukraine will have an effect on international tax in the coming months
The talk looks at the following areas where changes have occurred:
The talk should be of interest to anyone who has clients who are internationally mobile or multinational companies.
Multiple continuing uncertainties threatening business stability make it critical that companies turn their focus towards creating and applying strategies that are more resilient in the face of these. The financial crisis of 2007/8 and its residual effects, Brexit, Covid-19 and the Ukraine War are the most obvious recent major events creating economic and business disruption and these will resonate for years to come. Yet there are other threats and uncertainties that must be considered – environment and climate change, increasing intensity of competition, shifts in government policy, changing consumer trends and rapid technological change all represent real risks to stability but also offer opportunities to those businesses who are well prepared with robust and nimble strategies.

Becoming an effective finance business partner requires much preparation and significant changes to the way we interact with the business. Breaking down “them and us” barriers requires us to think about how we interact with management both as an F&A team and as individuals and how we are structured. On top of this, so much time is spent on day to day accounting that finding time to add additional management and business value and meet the needs of partnering is not easy. This session asks what should an F&A business partner be focused on, what structures have proven to work for others and what key skills do we need to develop?
Speaker: John McKenzie
