National Intelligence Forum - Thursday 26 November 2015

The National Intelligence Forum is a professional development opportunity hosted by AIPIO each year. Attendees include those who work in the intelligence community (law enforcement, defence, regulation and financial services), those currently studying in the field and those who aspire to work in the intelligence profession. AIPIO welcomes all interested parties. 

This year the Forum aims to provide participants with the latest developments on the following themes:

Cybercrime in financial markets
AML challenges – shaping current and future impacts
Methods and tools supporting analysts
Understanding the nature and dimensions of rapid change

Participants will have the opportunity to directly engage with speakers and panel members during and after the forum, to discuss issues related to their intelligence practice.
