FinCrime Virtual Week:

August 2-6, 2021

Complimentary Event



After a year of tumult and crisis, the time is ripe for creativity and innovation. Whether you’re analyzing customer risk, investigating a fraud case, or following up on an alert, you’re working each day to secure the financial system from the worst elements of the criminal underworld. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find creative ways to think like a financial criminal and identify weak points in your program before they’re exploited by bad actors.

Join us August 2-6 for a drill down on the criminal mind, a modern-day toolkit for prevention and detection, and a unique opportunity to sharpen your investigative ‘spy’ skills.


The flagship virtual event at ACFCS, FinCrime Virtual Week is different by design. We’re packing a full working week with training, interactive activities, and opportunities to connect with experts and your peers, all in a format that fits your schedule and respects your time.

You’ll experience a range of formats and educational options – From keynotes and motivational speeches, to thought-provoking panels, to live debates, to practical presentations that give guidance on top-of-mind fincrime challenges. Explore a different theme each day and get in on the conversations with expert speakers.


It’s hard to meet people when you’re at home…said no one ever after attending FinCrime Virtual where networking is made easy with our AI-powered platform. Grip gets you connected in the moment with instant video and chat messaging.

New this year is the topic-based Speed Networking sessions! This is a fun and quick way to mingle and talk about topics other than financial crime that you care about. Plus, don’t miss out on the multitude of the all-time popular roundtable discussions.


Work hard and play hard is the nature of this game! We believe that virtual doesn’t have to be boring, and now more than ever before we can all use some time to unwind, reenergize and boost our moods.

Join in on the good times with top secret missions, a team ‘bonding’ experience, spy stories, cocktail party, live music, real-life illustrations, caricature artist, scavenger hunts, trivia and plenty of prizes.
