Unlocking Crypto Crime – there is no such thing as Crypto currency crime. A presentation by Nick Furneaux

March 23, 2021 11:30 AM

Regulators and financial crime compliance professionals have begun to grasp the concepts behind blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies and other virtual assets. But for many in both the public and private sector, confidence levels in how to investigate crimes with a crypto dimension remain low. As crypto increasingly appears as an integral part of serious organised criminal schemes, money laundering and terrorist financing cases, this perceived disadvantage is becoming a pressing issue. In this session, we will hear from Nick Furneaux, a globally recognised crypto forensics expert, with over 25 years of experience in cyber security and digital investigations consultancy for companies and law enforcement agencies. Nick is also the author of ‘Investigating Cryptocurrency’, the only book available for dealing with the practical challenges of investigating crypto-linked crimes, and a crypto-investigation trainer to major businesses and law enforcement.

In this session, he will share his insights on the criminal potential of cryptocurrencies, but more importantly, focus on the investigative strategies needed to track, trace – and retrieve – them.
