The webinar “Threats to Global Security Webinar Series - Crimes of Wildlife Trafficking” features detailed insights and current case studies presented by experts that include Douglas Wolfson, Director, Financial Crime Compliance, LexisNexis® Risk Solutions and Brian Gonzales, Head of Protection of Endangered Species, World Wildlife Fund, Hong Kong.
The webinar illustrates the size and scope of global wildlife trafficking and illustrates the various stages of wildlife trafficking. It also details the related offences from ancillary laws connected to the wildlife trafficking trade:
Transactions related to wildlife trafficking are usually hidden within legitimate businesses. Many wildlife trafficking supply chains are based in cash until transportation and shipping come into play, which further complicates risk visibility.
There are advanced technologies and digital identity intelligence that can enable businesses to take a more proactive role in the prevention of wildlife trafficking by delivering a level of increased risk visibility. By identifying and isolating suspicious behaviors and transaction anomalies, these technologies help businesses avoid transactions tied to wildlife trafficking and expand the ability to keep bad actors out of key supply chains and business relationships.
Businesses participating in the global economy have a shared responsibility to prevent wildlife trafficking and the devastating economic, environmental and societal impacts fueled by wildlife crimes. Our webinar delivers real-world perspective on how your business can reinforce your commitment to wildlife trafficking prevention, protect your core values and prioritize your core business.
