Bitcoins and digital currencies are adding further complexity to the rapidly developing e-economy and commerce across borders. Financial institutions, corporates, law enforcement and the judiciary all face unique challenges and for fraud investigators, coming to terms with the different technologies, the implications of ‘block-chains’ and other investigative challenges, are upon us.
In our forthcoming February 2016 ACFE session we will be fortunate to have an expert in the field to explain and detail the current issues concerning digital currencies. Join us as Dr Angela Irwin from Macquarie University delivers what is sure to be an informative and detailed discussion on these technologies and the investigative challenges that lie ahead.
