An Insider’s Look at Financial Crime: Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, and “Madoff’ Author Diana B. Henriques, Headline NICE Actimize’s 2017 ENGAGE Client Forum

NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq:NICE) business, will kick off its annual ENGAGE Client Forum with a stellar roster of “insider” speakers who will analyze how firms can protect themselves against fraud and corruption, followed by discussions with technology experts who will address the era of transformation within financial crime management which is merging automation-focused technologies. The NICE Actimize ENGAGE Client Forum, an invitation-only event for financial services organizations, takes place in New York City on November 7 and 8.

Offering a behind the scenes look at the newest technologies in automation, advanced analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence as well as the critical business issues surrounding financial crime, ENGAGE Client Forum opens with a keynote speech by Preet Bharara, the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York who was recently signed by CNN as a senior legal analyst. The event closes with a “fireside chat” featuring Diana B. Henriques, New York Times contributor and author of the best seller, “The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust."

Joe Friscia, President, NICE Actimize
“At this year’s ENGAGE Client Forum, we will partner closely with our financial services organizations and other customers to address our transformation to an era of autonomous financial crime management, one that utilizes tools like Robotic Process Automation, machine learning and advanced analytics to power the platform that is transforming the fight against financial crime. Our ENGAGE Client Forum will also demonstrate how these technologies save time, money and enable our customers to fight the good fight.”

Preet Bharara, nominated to the U.S. Attorney’s position by President Barack Obama, earned a reputation as one of “the nation’s most aggressive and outspoken prosecutors,” according to The New York Times. Bharara supervised more than 200 US Attorneys and oversaw the investigation and litigation of all criminal and civil cases brought on behalf of the United States in the Southern District of New York. Ushering one of the most productive periods in New York history, his office handled a high volume of cases involving terrorism, narcotics and arms trafficking, financial and healthcare fraud, cybercrime, public corruption, gang violence, organized crime, and civil rights violations.

Diana B. Henriques, also the author of “A First-Class Catastrophe: The Road to Black Monday, the Worst Day in Wall Street History”, was a member of The New York Times team that was a Pulitzer finalist for its coverage of the 2008 financial crisis. A contributing writer for The New York Times, which she joined in 1989, she was previously a staff writer for Barron's magazine, a Wall Street correspondent for The Philadelphia Inquirer, and an investigative reporter for The Trenton (N.J.) Times. In May 2017, HBO released its film-length adaptation of The Wizard of Lies, starring Robert De Niro as Madoff, with Henriques playing herself. The film was nominated for four Emmy awards, including “best picture.”
