Terrorist attacks, counterfeiting, fraud, money laundering, kidnapping, hacking...: companies are constantly being targeted by criminal and terrorist organisations.

Managing this kind of risk requires in-depth knowledge of the criminals and terrorists who threaten business organisations and the techniques that they use, in order to
develop well-adapted risk management solutions.

EDHEC's Criminal Risks Management Chair is continually working to develop and disseminate its findings on strategic risk management in this highly specific and little studied field.
