Financial crime

Connect the dots for the full picture

Financial crime

The pressure to tackle financial crime has never been greater both for the corporate and public sector, with tightening regulations, growing demands by customers for integrity and increasing criminal sophistication.

Companies need to safeguard investments, protect their reputation, address sanctions and regulatory enquiries, and keep up with the changes resulting from digital technology. 

Yet current approaches are often a patchwork of fragmented, inefficient and, ultimately, ineffective efforts designed around compliance. We help our clients protect and defend their organisation from financial crime-related incidents that can harm reputation, or, if such instances occur, provide our clients with clear guidance on how to respond.

Deloitte can help assess our client's current approach and work with them to develop an improved financial crime operating model. An integrated approach can help align strategy, people, processes and data, towards a more unified view of risk.

Across Mining, Oil and Gas, and Energy distribution, transformation and production, the spectre of financial crime has serious implications for corporates and regulators at the federal and state levels.

Technology, Media and Telecommunications


The Technology, media and telecommunications industries are going through unprecedented disruptions and changes as a result of the "five-post-digital forces" of data, cloud, mobility, social media and cyber-crime. Financial crime management is now fundamental to strategic business opportunities to enable and sustain productivity and growth while managing complex compliance issues.
