CTF Online Symposium No. 2: New Technologies but Old Methods in Terrorism Financing

30 July 2020, 15:00
RUSI Europe and the team behind Project CRAAFT (Collaboration, Research and Analysis Against Financing of Terrorism) are delighted to invite you to attend our webinar, delivered by CTF expert Jessica Davis.

Terrorists are adaptative: they update their tactics, also in the financial space. They exploit new technologies to procure weapons and components, sell propaganda, move funds internationally, and solicit donations. In this webinar, Jessica will present a research briefing that discusses new technologies, but old methods in which terrorists operate nowadays.

Jessica Davis works as a global security consultant specializing in terrorism, illicit financing, and women in terrorism. She began her career in intelligence analysis with the Canadian Military, then transitioned to a policy role at Global Affairs Canada before becoming a team leader with Canada’s financial intelligence unit, FINTRAC.

At Insight Threat Intelligence, Jessica works to bring evidence-based solutions to the private and public sectors to counter illicit financing and terrorism. She has published extensively, including in the Globe and Mail, Just Security, and Policy Options. She is an associate fellow with the Global Network on Extremism & Technology and on the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Security and Intelligence Studies.

Jessica is the author of Women in Modern Terrorism: From Liberations Wars to Global Jihad and the Islamic State (2017) and an as-yet untitled book on terrorist financing expected in 2020.

This event will take place on 30 July 2020, 1500 London time / 1600 Brussels time.

Participants can access the webinar either online or via phone. Please note, that only participants joining us online will be able submit written questions during the webinar.

The webinar, including Q&A, will be recorded and published on the Project CRAAFT website.
