Economic crime is impacting all aspects of society – citizens, governments and businesses. Fraud, money laundering, bribery and corruption and terrorist financing expose the most vulnerable in society to exploitation by organised 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 organised 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 organised crime groups, and Illuminate the complex networks of criminality.




Public sector

Government and law enforcement need to work closely together with each other, and with the private sector, to deliver effective policies and solutions. Solutions that make best use of data, technology and international collaboration. This is where we can help.


Financial services

Ethical misconduct and crimes such as fraud, money laundering, sanctions, bribery and corruption can have devastating consequences on society. We help financial institutions protect, monitor and respond against the threats of economic crime.



Corporates have a key role in the prevention of economic crime, for example through fraud prevention and helping to prevent trade based money laundering. We help corporates build a risk and control framework that helps combat the everyday struggle to tackle economic crime.
