Organizations that are at risk from fraud and financial crime need to establish a realistic understanding of the risk and develop innovative strategies for sharing intelligence and protecting their stakeholders. Paul Horlick brings together his experience in the police service and financial services industry to illustrate how to assess the risks of fraud, money laundering and other financial crime; how to use models such as the national intelligence model to develop a strategic response and the practical interventions that are associated with it.

He explores how to use threat assessment predictions around crime trends based on changes that are political, economic, social, technological, environmental, legal, geographical or organizational to enable a proactive approach to the problem.

Employees represent an important part of this risk and the book explains how to use profiling of criminal types, source handling and whistle blowing as part of the strategy of internal intervention. Highly organized criminal gangs pose an increasing threat so there is a chapter explaining the nature of this threat and the gangs involved.

In an environment of increasing threat and over-stretched law enforcement, Paul Horlick shows organizations from financial services, the public sector and others at risk from large-scale financial crime, how they can help themselves in tackling financial crime through effective prevention, enforcement and intelligence. The book draws examples from across the public and financial sectors.
