Commercial Fraud Commission Day

Online

16 November 2020 13:50 - 19:30 CET


Cyber-crime has no national boundaries. It continues to rise in scale and complexity wreaking indescribable damage on businesses and individuals, and costing economies billions annually.  Likewise, the theft of cryptoassets, cryptoasset scams, and the use of cryptocurrencies to conceal assets is growing rapidly; the Wall Street Journal reported this year that cryptocurrency Ponzi schemes and other frauds involving cryptocurrencies defrauded people of more than US$4 billion in 2019. That was more than 2017 and 2018 combined.

 The Commercial Fraud Commission is therefore pleased to bring you two exciting sessions on these subjects:

 Session one will focus on criminal aspects of hacking and cyber-crime such as: jurisdiction of criminal authorities for prosecution, enforcement of interim measures or sanctions / international mutual assistance, new cyber-fraud schemes (also COVID-related) and new offenses. We are pleased to welcome Oliver Crofton of Marclay Associates (a cyber security firm specialising in the protection of organisations against cyber-attack) as guest speaker.

 Session two will focus on tracing and recovering crypto-assets, including looking at methods and case studies. We look forward to welcoming Marlon Pinto of Another Day (a specialist intelligence and investigations firm with experience in tracing crypto-assets) as guest speaker.

 The Commercial Fraud Commission Day will conclude with an exciting social event – each participating member will have three minutes to tell us about something (non-legal) that they love or that they are passionate about; this could be why penne is the best form of pasta, your proof that aliens exist, or the benefits of yoga (with demonstrations) …. anything! This is your chance to be creative! Powerpoint or other visual presentations are encouraged but not essential. This will be followed by drinks and conversation.

We look forward to seeing you on our Commission Day!

More information about the speakers and schedule can be found under the programme section of this page.

All academic sessions are recorded and shared in the Resource Centre the week after the events.


This event takes place during:

Inside the cybercriminal’s mind: how to understand and then catch them?
This session will focus on the hacking, the psychology of hacking, and cybercrime more generally. Our panel will be specifically focusing on the difficulties in pursuing perpetrators across multiple jurisdictions exploring what tools law enforcement use currently to tackle this problem (i.e. extensions of jurisdiction; MLA; interim measures; sanctions; extradition etc.), and whether there are any tools on the horizon that might better equip law enforcement to fight this superior threat (e.g. new cyber-fraud schemes and new offences around the world).

We are pleased to welcome Oliver Crofton of Marclay Associates (a cyber security firm specialising in the protection of organisations against cyber-attack) as guest speaker.

Moderator: Max Mailliet, Etude Max Mailliet, Luxembourg

Guest Speaker: Oliver Crofton, Marclay Associates, UK (Cyber Security Expert)

Crypto-assets: technical and legal fundamentals for fraud lawyers
This session will consider some of the key technical issues (myths and reality) that crypto-assets present in the context of fraud and how those technical issues impact on legal rights and remedies. The session will assume a very basic understanding of crypto-assets and distributed ledger technology and will aim to lead the audience to the next level. A clear understanding of the technology is a critical starting point for any proper analysis of the fundamental legal issues that fraud lawyers in any jurisdiction will have to grapple with, such as governing law, the legal nature of crypto-assets and available remedies.

We are pleased to welcome Marlon Pinto, a director at Another Day who specialises in corporate investigations and crisis response, and Alexander Amann, Attorney at Law in Liechtenstein and Zurich. Marlon will provide his professional insights on the technical issues and Alexander will use the example of the recent Liechtenstein Blockchain Act to highlight some of the key legal issues that will arise in any jurisdiction.

Moderator: Marc Jones, Stewarts Law, UK

Guest Speaker: Marlon Pinto, Another Day, UK

Panellist: Dr Alexander Amann, Schwarzler Law, Liechtenstein
