NEW YORK – October 1, 2013 – 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 its ENGAGE 2013 Client Forum events, three exclusive gatherings of executive leadership from the world’s most prominent financial institutions. The ENGAGE Client Forums are invitation-only events for NICE Actimize clients organized to foster idea-sharing among the world’s leading financial institutions. The three events will take place in Paris (October 17), New York City (October 23-24), and Hong Kong (November 7).

Former United States Senator Christopher J. Dodd, known for his leadership during the U.S. banking and economic crisis, will keynote the New York event on October 24. The Honorable Mr. Dodd, a U.S. Senator from the State of Connecticut for 30 years, is the Senate Banking Committee Chairman who, along with House of Representatives Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, was the co-creator of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act signed into federal law by President Barack Obama on July 21, 2010.

Additional keynote speakers for the ENGAGE Client Forums will include (in Hong Kong) Mark Steward, Member of the Commission and Executive Director, Enforcement Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and Charlie McCreevy, European Union Commissioner for Internal Market and Services (2004-2010), and a former Irish Minister (in Paris).

Titled  “ENGAGE” to reflect the partnership and interaction between NICE Actimize and its client community, this year’s events will be attended by more than 300 mid to senior-level global professionals united by a shared interest in successfully tackling complex financial crime and regulatory compliance challenges. The ENGAGE Client Forums will feature more than 40 executive-level presentations and panels, where senior global client leadership and NICE Actimize  subject matter experts collaborate to discuss best practices relating to critical business and technology issues – including management of cyber threats; migration of EMV; financial crime model governance, benchmark manipulation; compliance in the cloud, holistic trade surveillance; and layered security, along with discussions on the changing culture of the regulator and broker-dealer accountability.

“For the past nine years, we have provided NICE Actimize clients with an opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with their global colleagues,” said Amir Orad, president and CEO, NICE Actimize. “In our closed-door information sessions, our clients are able to privately address the many pain points facing their institutions and discuss the solutions best designed to alleviate them, in a collaborative and information-packed environment.”
