Public Seminar: Managing financial and cybercrime in the Greater Bay Area
The School of Business and Law is organising a Public Seminar about managing the Greater Bay Area cybercrime on 21st June
About the talk
With the recent development and use of information technology and communication systems, individuals, companies and public entities have tremendously benefited in terms of information exchange and services delivery. However, several risks are associated with this technological development as different entities and individuals are exposed to a non-traditional type of Financial crime.
For the last 30 years, financial crime has increasingly become of concern to governments throughout the world and its substantial threat to the development of economies and their stability is no longer questioned.
It covers the following illegal activities: fraud; electronic crime; money laundering; terrorist financing; bribery and corruption; market abuse and insider dealing; information security.
In the Greater Bay Area, Macau and Hong Kong have respectively established a regulatory framework dealing with the financial crime.
Therefore, the purpose of this round table discussion is to analyse the recent development of the regulatory framework dealing with financial crime in Macao and the controversies about the nexus between cyber security and the right to privacy and free speech both in Macao and Hong Kong.
