Listen to our webinar “A Pragmatic Approach: Defeating Hybrid Threat Networks of Financial Crime”


Hybrid threat networks are pervasive and insidious. They leverage human suffering for profit. These networks have successfully infiltrated our financial systems in all areas. In this session, we will build the framework for a new way to look at money laundering and even fraud detection by laying out the networks, geographies, players, and mechanisms of these networks.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the terminology and concepts to aid in threat detection
  • The role of AI to augment current detection approaches
  • Identify the pragmatic approach to investigate and prepare cases fueled by illicit trade scenarios
