10:15am to 11:15am The emerging field of international asset recovery during fraud investigations.
Speaker Robbie Fleming - Robert Fleming Lawyers, Vancouver
Topic Summary The field of International asset recovery has emerged over the past couple of years into a specialized practice area which involves acting simultaneously and strategically in multiple jurisdictions around the world to find and seize the proceeds of fraud. This is not about standing around waiting to obtain judgments to enforce, it is about using investigation and pre-judgment asset seizure tools to trace and lock down assets wherever they may be before they disappear.
11:30am to 12:30pm Illicit economies related to fraud and cybercrime and proposed cyber deterrence strategies and victim remedies.
Speaker Patrick Neal - Program Coordinator, Crime and Intelligence Analysis at BCIT
Topic Summary Cybercrime continues to be a significant threat/harm to citizens, consumers, corporations, and government. Expressed as lost revenue, lost cost opportunity to pursue corporate growth, lost tax dollar to illicit economies - corporations and individuals are now acting as judge, jury, and executioner. This presentation will take you into the world of hackbacks, strikebacks, and revenge attacks. Then explore a cyber deterrence response mechanism being considered in US House of Representatives as Bill H.R. 4036 which proposes a legal remedy for victims of cyberattacks. More specifically - the presentation wants to raise awareness of the impact this will have on forensics, evidence, and unintended consequences.
