Hundreds of Anti-Fraud Professionals to Discuss Cybersecurity, Whistleblowing and More in Hong Kong



The largest gathering of anti-fraud professionals from the Asia-Pacific region will take place in Hong Kong this autumn at the 2017 ACFE Fraud Conference Asia-Pacific. The conference will be held 17-19 September at the Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong, and feature sessions and speeches from leaders in the compliance and cybercrime industry. 


K. F. Lam, executive director and head of compliance for the Hong Kong branch of United Overseas Bank Limited will educate attendees on how anti-money laundering factors into combatting the financing of terrorism. He has more than 15 years of experience in regulatory compliance in multiple Asian and Hong Kong-based banking groups. He will be joined by Keshav Dhakad, assistant general counsel and regional director of Microsoft’s digital crimes unit. Dhakad has extensive experience on the topics of IT governance, cybercrime, cybersecurity, trusted cloud, intellectual property crimes and related subject matters across the Asia region.


Concurrent sessions will include discussions about cybersecurity in the People’s Republic of China, the future of financial crime compliance, practical whistleblowing and more. This conference is an invaluable opportunity to hear from today’s anti-fraud leaders and for journalists in the region to meet and cultivate expert sources for future stories.
