The panel will include experts in law enforcement, anti-illegal trade efforts, supply chain management, and national security. It will feature a comprehensive assessment of illegal trade and its links to other crimes, as well as a discussion of best practices for countering these converging security issues and the growing threat of illegal trade.


Industry representatives with extensive experience in the areas of illegal trade, intellectual property, and brand protection will engage in discussion. These firms engage heavily in fighting against global supply chain threats through intelligence-led investigations, the creation of track-and-trace technologies, and proactive risk management approaches. The discussion will provide an insight into what the private sector faces on a daily basis.
