A Special Two-Part Webinar Series
Presented By Timea Nagy - Human Trafficking Survivor, Author, Educator, Social Advocate
Members complimentary, non-members $50
Despite growing efforts by financial institutions and law enforcement, human trafficking remains a multi-billion dollar criminal industry and a scourge on the lives of an estimated 21 million victims worldwide.
The financial services sector is uniquely positioned to assist in combating human trafficking by unveiling the illicit proceeds that fuel it. In this special two-part webinar, human trafficking survivor, author and social advocate Timea Nagy will take attendees inside the grim world of human trafficking, and provide insights on how to detect and prevent it.
In the first session, Timea will share her story to illustrate the inner workings of human trafficking. After immigrating to Canada in 1998 from Hungary, Timea was held by traffickers and forced to work in the sex industry, before escaping and rebuilding her life.
The second session will offer practical guidance on how financial institutions can implement and augment programs to detect the proceeds of human trafficking. Attendees will learn:
- Key red flags related that can be used to help identify possible victims and uncover traffickers
- Guidance and best practices provided by industry associations, advocacy groups and regulators that can assist with training and awareness
- How institutions can harness information-sharing programs, both between institutions and with law enforcement, to help detect threats and more effectively respond to human trafficking
This two-part series is eligible for 2 CFCS credits.
