Judging of the awards will take place throughout August. Those who are selected as finalists will then progress through to the next phase, with the winners due to be announced at a prestigious awards dinner taking place on Monday 9 December at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, Park Lane, London.

“The awards themselves aim to recognise the outstanding achievements of those involved in all areas of economic crime,” commented Professor Martin Gill CSyP FSyI, founder of the TECAs. “Those who make commendable and limitless contributions in driving out such crime as corporate espionage, fraud, money laundering, bribery and corruption deserve to be recognised.”

The 2019 Tackling Economic Crime Awards are sponsored by fraud technology provider Altia-ABM.
