The categories are split across four key themes, including celebrating teams, recognising individuals, praising collaboration, and showcasing innovation. The award entries were reviewed and assessed by a judging panel comprising senior compliance and financial crime prevention leaders who were looking for outstanding achievements, innovation, collaboration, and excellence across individual submissions, team projects and business initiatives.
