Following the successful launch of the ACi Banking Investigators’ Forum in 2022, we are delighted to hold the event in 2023 on Thursday 5th October. This year the event is hosted by Ashurst.
As the banking industry continues to evolve, so too do the challenges faced by those tasked with investigating potential wrongdoing. The rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Chat GPT, and AI document production has added a new layer of complexity to banking investigations. In particular, the use of such technologies by wrongdoers to impersonate legitimate banking websites, social media accounts, and even create deep fakes of voices and photos has made identifying and prosecuting offenders increasingly difficult.
Additionally, recent regulatory actions have highlighted risks arising from the proliferation in use of off-channel communications, including personal devices or social media accounts. This has required investigators to adapt to new methods of gathering evidence and ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.
Internal staff investigations have become more complex, with developments in the burden of proof and investigation reports requiring greater attention to detail and accuracy. This is particularly true in cases involving fraud, AML, ABC, and sanctions, where the stakes can be high and the consequences severe.
Despite these challenges, regulators continue to emphasize the importance of internal investigations in maintaining the integrity of the banking industry. By staying abreast of the latest developments in technology and regulatory expectations, investigators can help ensure that wrongdoers are brought to justice and public trust is maintained.
