Security and Regulation - Information, Risk and Financial Crime

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) |

Date: Wednesday 12 March 2008
Time: 3pm-5pm
Venue: Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies (RUSI) Whitehall, London, SW1A 2ET

Financial institutions have extensive regulated responsibilities for preventing and detecting money laundering and the funding of terrorist activities. Similarly, agencies concerned with security of both infrastructure and personnel work with, and rely on, regulated aspects of organisations, such as internal control and risk management systems. At the heart of this growing intersection between the worlds of regulation and security, the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information is an important focus.

Our panel of experts will each explore, from their distinctive perspectives, the varied and changing relationships between information security, financial crime and regulation.

Discussing these issues will be:

Dr James Backhouse 

Director, Systems and Innovation Group, Department of Management, London School of Economics

Mr JP Rangaswami

Chief Information Officer, BT Global Services

Professor Michael Levi

Crime and Justice Research Group, University of Cardiff

Elizabeth Robertson

Partner, Addleshaw Goddard LLP

The discussion will be chaired by Professor Michael Power, Research Theme Director, ESRC Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation, London School of Economics.

Pre-booking isn't required for the CARR session, but it would be helpful if you let the organisers know by emailing|.

Directions to the venue are available at the RUSI website.
