QNB Group, the largest financial institution in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), has announced its diamond sponsorship to the "2020 Compliance and Combating Financial Crime Forum," which will start Wednesday.
The forum is organised by The World Union of Arab Banks and hosted by the Qatar Central Bank as part of regional efforts to counter the escalating pattern of financial crime. It will discuss cyber-crime, the various forms of financial crimes and the methods for detecting suspicious activities in Qatar.
QNB’s sponsorship of this important forum comes as part of the group’s commitment to combating the increasing spread of financial crimes, especially the increasing resort to cybercrime that accompanies the accelerating digitisation of this age, said its spokesman.
"QNB is also firmly committed to the compliance culture in Qatar and internationally, ensuring the combating of fraud and the enhancement of security and accountability across its international operations," the spokesman said.
The forum will also include the discussion on many other topics related to financial crimes and the compliance field by its prestigious panel of experts. The most notable of these will be cyber security, compliance data protection, global anti-money laundering issues, banks and de-risking, raising awareness on financial crimes, and fraud and cybersecurity in the age of digitalisation.
