Meet the Press: Journalists as Influencers in the Financial Crime Arena (Media Panel)
In recent years, seismic scandals like the Panama Papers disclosures and the FIFA corruption case have demonstrated the importance of investigative journalists in the financial crime field. Never before have journalists demonstrated their ability to collaborate in groups such as the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICJ), to network with whistleblowers and groups such as Wikileaks, to focus public attention on financial crime issues and to effect government and regulatory change.
From reporters on headline-grabbing cases to those digging into corruption and other criminal activity on a smaller scale, journalists are key stakeholders in the financial crime detection and prevention community. In this session, meet a few of those hard working journalists who have worked “in the trenches” to break the stories that need to matter to all financial crime professionals.
