This high level conference will bring together key decision makers and investigators in economic and white-collar crime, as well as those who have to interpret prosecution decisions and advise on possible outcomes and the best strategies to employ.

The expert panel of speakers will focus on the practical issues that arise from enforcement priorities and ask the critical question: How does commerce and its advisors respond to the agenda set by the enforcement agencies?

Attendance at this conference will be essential for all those wanting to keep up to date with all the latest developments in law, practice and policy in this intensely complex area of work.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
