Effective training courses play a vital role in enabling companies to deal with these problems, by providing workforces with the skills they need to identify and mitigate the risks.

At GP Strategies, we are committed to delivering customised financial crime training programmes that strategically align with your organisational objectives and equip delegates with the expertise required to manage these dangers effectively.

What is financial crime training?

Financial crime training raises employees’ awareness of illegal activities that could affect their organisations. We provide delegates with the skills required to identify and defend themselves and their employers from these risks. They focus on a range of different areas, such as bribery and corruption, fraud, money laundering, cyber-crime, information security and sanctions compliance.

Our learning and development programmes teach delegates:

Thanks to their practical focus, these learning and development opportunities benefit anyone who has responsibilities in financial crime prevention, whether this is the central focus of their role or a peripheral element.

What are the learning outcomes?

The exact learning outcomes depends on the programme undertaken and the aspects of financial crime they wish to focus on. Essentially the courses will give your employees the knowledge and skills to prevent crimes including fraud and identify theft, bribery and corruption, money laundering, and cyber-crime. They will increase their awareness in areas such as the role of due diligence, the importance of identity confirmation, how to identify and flag up suspicious behaviour and the reporting requirements that their organisations are subject to.

More broadly, delegates will develop a deeper understanding of the impact of financial crime and how it threatens businesses, and they will appreciate the vital role they can play in helping to combat this illicit behaviour. The knowledge and skills they gain in this area will serve to make them more effective and confident in their roles, and it will mean they are better able to protect your organisation from criminal activity that could harm your reputation and long-term success.

Why is financial crime training so important?

Financial crime is a major problem globally and many financial service providers are struggling to keep up with the increasing sophistication and volume of threats coming from accounting fraud, money laundering, bribery and corruption, asset misappropriation and cyber-crime. Effective financial crime training is therefore vital if businesses are to successfully control the dangers they face as a result of these forms of illegal activity.
