NICE Actimize Engages Former SEC Chairman Mary L. Schapiro and FBI Special Agent Gregory A. Coleman to Keynote 11th Annual Global Client Forum

An information-packed, two-day agenda addresses financial crime and compliance challenges facing global financial institutions

September 8, 2014

NEW YORK – September 8, 2014 –NICE Actimize, a NICE Systems (NASDAQ:NICE) business and the largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software platform for the financial services industry, announces that Mary L. Schapiro, the only person to have served as both Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), will keynote its ENGAGE 2014 Client Forum, an exclusive gathering of executive leadership from the world’s most prominent financial institutions. In its eleventh year, the ENGAGE Client Forum is an invitation-only event organized to foster idea-sharing among NICE Actimize clients and invited industry leaders. The event will take place in New York City on October 21-22.

In addition to Schapiro, FBI Special Agent Gregory A. Coleman – known for his role in leading the pursuit and criminal investigation into the dealings of the so-called “Wolf of Wall Street,” Jordan Belfort – will talk about his work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and his pursuit of a range of financial fraudsters particularly focused on anti-money laundering related activities.

Themed “ENGAGE” to reflect the interaction between NICE Actimize and its client community, this year’s event is expected to be attended by more than 300 senior-level global professionals and will include more than 40 executive-level presentations and panels. Featuring senior client leadership and NICE Actimize subject matter experts, specialized content tracks will be dedicated to anti-money laundering, fraud detection and prevention, financial markets compliance and case management technology.

“For the past eleven years, our client base has partnered with us at Client Forum to share knowledge, experiences and ideas with their global colleagues regarding financial crime and compliance best practices and strategies,” said Joe Friscia, president, NICE Actimize. “As the industry’s problems have grown in scope and complexity, our Client Forum itself has also grown its ability to serve in an advisory capacity and as an open, idea-sharing venue.” 

Schapiro served as the 29th Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (2009-2012) as well as Commissioner (1988-1994). During four years as SEC chairman, she presided over one of the busiest rule-making agendas in the agency's history, during which the agency also brought a record number of enforcement actions, and executed a comprehensive restructuring program to improve protections for investors. She was appointed Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) by President Bill Clinton in 1994 and served in that capacity until 1996. Prior to becoming SEC Chairperson, she was CEO of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) — the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities firms doing business with the U.S. public—where she served until 2008.

FBI Special Agent Gregory A. Coleman, widely known for his pursuit of Stratton Oakmont, a Long Island over-the-counter brokerage house lead by the “Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort, joined the FBI in 1989. From 1989-1992, Coleman investigated Ponzi and advance fee schemes under the mail and wire fraud statutes and provided support for an undercover investigation targeting fraud in the commodities markets. In 1992, Coleman became one of the original members of an investigative squad established to address securities fraud and commodities fraud on a full-time basis. In September 2008, Coleman moved to his current position as part of the Asset Forfeiture/Money Laundering Team.
