Review of ‘Panama Papers’, ACFE Sydney Chapter event

Over sixty ACFE members and guests attended the ACFE Sydney Chapter Training Seminar on the 9 June, 2016 at KPMG. The topic ‘Panama Papers’ drew a diverse audience that was representative of the public interest in the controversy, conundrum and ethical discussions in relation to what is being described as one of the greatest data leaks in history.

Natalie Faulkner, Director, KPMG Forensic and Ross Hocking, Special Counsel/Director, Tax Controversy & Dispute Resolution, KPMG Law both took to the podium to provide a comprehensive profile of the impact, issues and challenges facing regulators in giving appropriate responses to the data leaks.  Natalie gave insights into the process that lead to the release and some statistics regarding the volume of data released in the Panama Papers compared to other previous leaks.  Ross discussed relevant legislation, reminding the audience of recent significant developments and increasing obligations regarding disclosure obligations for banks.  The pertinent questions that followed from the audience illustrated the range of interest in the problems and effects that could potentially ensue both locally and globally in the post data-leak period.

Many thanks to Natalie and Ross for their interesting and thought provoking presentation, and to KPMG for generously sponsoring the event, for providing a comfortable auditorium and for the networking opportunities with the speakers and peers, whilst indulging in a delicious buffet.
