Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

Criminal and terrorist organisations are increasingly targeting victims indiscriminately around the globe through white collar and violent crime to fund and pursue their goals. Furthermore, the current environment continues to favour the criminal and the terrorist.

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.

Business Leadership for IT Projects

Fernando Torres' disappointing and misguided public threat
Last week I criticized Steven Gerrard for failing to provide public support for Rafa. Since then, a host of players have backed the Spaniard, including Peter Crouch and John Arne Riise. There is a fine line though between moderate public support and holding the club to ransom, and Fernando Torres has crossed that line. Torres’ latest comments are quite simply unacceptable and come at a time when the Benitez/Hicks storm seemed
