Tackling economic crimeForging a whole-system response
Economic crime is impacting all aspects of society—citizens, governments, and businesses. Fraud, money laundering, bribery, corruption, and terrorist financing expose the most vulnerable in society to exploitation by organized criminal gangs, through crimes such as people trafficking, modern slavery, and child sexual exploitation.
Whilst the public and private sectors have invested heavily to combat the threat, with many high-profile successes, tackling criminal activity continues to be a challenge for the ‘system’—government, law enforcement, regulators, corporates, and financial institutions—as organized gangs operate with a level of speed and sophistication which is difficult to counter.
Delivering a step-change requires a coordinated ‘whole system’ response. Deloitte works across the system to enhance its ability to prevent economic crime, disrupt sophisticated corporate frauds, and the flows of illicit finance which underpin the activity of organized crime groups, and Illuminate the complex networks of criminality.
