Directors are exposed
The media, shareholders and the public are exposed to stories everyday of organisations damanaged by financial crime. Employee misconduct. Executive corruption. Fraudulent trading. Financial Losses. Loss of public trust. Cyber-breaches and data losses. Regulatory failures and avoidable fines. Loss of public confidence and Directors' liability. Board collapses and criminal charges.
Right now financial crime and organised crime risk is not part of DIrectors' and Executive leaders' formal education. Boards often rely on in-house risk or compliance teams or their accountant to guide them in this area.
We help Boards and individual Directors navigate; challenge and stress-test the capability of those they rely on. We help you assess whether your company has fortified your business from financial crime adequately. We share insights about emerging crime techniques and we offer smart clear signposts to help close gaps.
We act as a technical suppliment to your Audit and Risk Committee bench - feeding you information or joining you in informative conversations or offering discreet Board briefings inside or outside formal Board meetings.
- help steer your attention to likely fincrime exposure relevant to your business;
- critically challenge risk assessments you have been relying upon;
- share our experience of your potential regulatory and professional exposure and
- tease out gaps in technical solutions or remediation plans being proposed by executive teams or yourthird party advisors.
Round Table Briefings
For confidential round table conversations, FIncrime Australia charges a flat fee of AUD $1,000 + GST that includes Melbourne metropolitan travel time; a two hour briefing and 30 minute Q&A. Interstate or international travel if required is billed in addition at cost.
Skype virtual briefings for the same fee are also welcome for remote, regional and rural community Boards.
Fincrime Australia can also consider pro-bono board briefings where our usual fees may be beyond a Not-For-Profit's budget.
Online access to experts and peers
FIncrime Australia also hosts a biannual online event called FINTCH - the FIncrime International Collaboration Hive.
FINTCH is an online meeting of expert practitioners and podcast patrons who donate as 'Liquid Gold' level patrons - $20 per podcast / minimum $240 per year.
Together, at FINTCH - over 2 hrs - we wallpaper the hive (virtually) with emerging issues / threats, trends, new ideas and questions important to you.
