Protect your firm against the ongoing threat of financial crime

Fraud, money-laundering, terrorist-financing and the complexity of politically-exposed persons – all of these represent threats to regulated firms and pose a significant threat to individuals and society at large.

Public opinion is increasingly turning sour against firms that fail to adequately protect their customers from fraud. At the same time, regulatory developments are tightening the relationship between fraud controls and those required to mitigate other risks – data security risks, for example. Firms must, therefore, seek to continuously improve their financial crime controls while also ensuring that improvements drive even better experiences for their customers.

How we help firms defend against financial crime

We’ll help you build the cyber resilience your firm needs to operate with confidence in an increasingly hostile digital environment. Gadhia Consultants and Huntswood experts come together to review (and even re-write) your cyber security strategy, helping your firm along the path to cyber resilience. 

We provide specialist resource for our clients, ensuring you have the right people embedded to spot the risks and manage them effectively and efficiently.

Where an incident has occurred, we provide qualified professionals to investigate, and recover losses (where possible), all while ensuring lessons learned are adopted to enhance and build upon existing controls.

Our challenge … has been extremely demanding and Huntswood has had to deal with a rapid upsizing of the ongoing engagements, taking the number of deployed staff from an initial 16 to 174 in a very short space of time.
