Theresa Flores, Human Trafficking Survivor and Victims’ Advocate, to Keynote NICE Actimize ENGAGE 2019 Financial Crime Forum
Flores will tell her powerful story as a human trafficking victim, and discuss the role that the financial services industry can play in stopping illicit activities
November 5th, 2019
Hoboken, N.J., November 5, 2019 –NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business, and a leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, today confirmed that Theresa Flores, a human trafficking survivor, author, and victims' advocate, will keynote at ENGAGE 2019. The industry's premier event fully dedicated to innovation in the financial crime and compliance industry, ENGAGE 2019 is open to NICE Actimize clients, partners and sponsors, and will be held in New York City on November 19 and 20.
Sharing her harrowing experiences as a young woman from a well-to-do suburban neighborhood, Flores survived two years being trafficked. At the time she was trafficked, no one, not even her parents, knew what was going on. Twenty years later, Theresa is speaking out on the realities of human trafficking in the United States. She is also the author of "The Slave Across the Street", a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller, which is now available in a tenth anniversary e-book edition, and "The Sacred Bath", her new top seller appearing on the UK Sunday Times list which offers a look into her escape from her traffickers and her struggle to heal. At ENGAGE 2019, she will also discuss the critical role that the financial services industry can play in identifying, tracking and stopping many of these illicit activities.
"Fostering a continuing dialogue with our community of financial services organizations on the extraordinary impact of human trafficking is an important objective. The statistics around human trafficking are stunning, with the International Labour Organization estimating that there are 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally and that forced labor and human trafficking is a $150 billion industry worldwide," said Craig Costigan, CEO, NICE Actimize. "The important work of many financial services organizations in fighting human trafficking has led to increased rescues of victims, and we feel it is important to continue to shed a spotlight on this critical issue at our ENGAGE 2019 Client Forum."
NICE Actimize's ENGAGE 2019 offers interactive discussions led by both NICE Actimize Product Management and invited industry experts – attendees will hear what's new, what's coming, and most importantly, be able to share ideas with other attendees at the open networking sessions.
The agenda addresses critical issues facing financial services organizations, with thought-provoking sessions focused on today's financial crime and compliance challenges, as well as game changing technologies such as Robotic Process Automation and machine learning. Additional topics explore key business issues for 2020 such as "Trusting Digital Identity" to "The Evolving Role of Crypto and Surveillance" to "The Power of Collective Intelligence for Data Insights" and "I Feel the Need, the Need for Speed: Faster Payments in the U.S."
