Shima Keene’s Threat Finance offers new thinking to equip any organisation whether government, law enforcement, military or corporate, with the knowledge and tools to deploy effective counter measures to tackle the threat. Threat Finance is an essential read for fraud and security practitioners, risk managers, regulators, policy-makers, intelligence officials, judges, barristers, law enforcement officers, and researchers in this field.
Dr Keene offers an antidote to the lack of good, applied, research; shortcomings in in-house financial and forensic expertise; misdirected financial compliance schemes; legal and judicial idiosyncrasies; unhelpful organisation structures and poor communication. In their place, she argues convincingly for a coherent, aggressive, informed and cross-disciplinary approach to an ever changing and rapidly growing threat.
