Chris Mathers

Crime, Terrorism & Security Expert

Bio

Chris Mathers spent most of his life working undercover for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, US Drug Enforcement Administration, and the US Customs Service. Posing as a gangster, a drug trafficker, and even as a money launderer, Mathers has seen and done it all. In his extraordinary talks, Mathers takes audiences into the underworld that only he can describe, letting people in on the stunning stories and secrets harboured by terrorists and those involved in organized crime. +

Mathers retired after a 20-year career with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  At the time of his retirement, he was the senior undercover operator at the RCMP Proceeds of Crime Section where he established and operated a number of “storefront” money laundering businesses in Canada and the US, targeting Colombian, Russian, and Asian crime groups.  Mathers personally infiltrated criminal organizations in North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe.

In 1995, Mathers joined the Forensic division of the international accounting firm, KPMG.  In 1999, he was appointed to the position of President of KPMG Corporate Intelligence Inc. where he was responsible for international due diligence, asset recovery operations, and the investigation and prevention of organized crime and money laundering.

A popular media commentator and speaker, Mathers has served as a consultant on several feature films and documentaries relating to organized crime, espionage and money laundering. He has appeared on television and radio interviews on CNN, PBS, MSNBC, all of the Canadian national news networks as well as media outlets in Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia and the Caribbean. Mathers is also the host of The Egyptian Job, on the National Geographic Channel. He is also the author of the bestselling book, Crime School: Money Laundering. --

Futureproofing Your Business: Privacy, Safety, and Security Post-COVID +

Although working from home has reduced some of the risk to employees and customers, it has drastically increased the risk to businesses, particularly as it relates to cyber crime and data theft.

COVID-19 also demonstrated how adept organized crime groups are at dealing with change. Within days of the outbreak, they had changed their business model, identified new opportunities, and found new ways to commit fraud and theft.

In order to safeguard information, business owners need to ask important questions of employees who will continue to work remotely:

  • Are they willing to submit to increased cyber-security measures? Measures that may require use of their biometrics? Or location tracking?
  • How much of their privacy are they willing to sacrifice? For convenience? For personal security?

Join Chris Mathers as he describes how recent changes in the world have created new opportunities for organized crime and state-sponsored criminals and the profound impact it will have, both on the way we do business and how we live our lives. --

KEYNOTES:
(All of the following can also be delivered virtually)

Cyber Security: The Invisible War +

You may not know it, but we are at war.  Not in Iraq.  Not in Afghanistan.  But in our own country. Every minute of every day, American and European companies and governments are under attack from an invisible enemy.  An enemy who is not limited by rules of engagement or ethical boundaries. An enemy whose goal is to develop the capability to disrupt our commerce, our infrastructure and our military.

Here are some scary stats:

  • The energy company, BP, reports 50,000 hacking attempts every day.
  • The Pentagon reports 10 million hacking attempts every day.

However, it is not just companies who are combatants in this invisible war.  It’s also you and me.  Every day criminals, spies and vandals attack us online in an attempt to steal our identity and our money.

What can you do to reduce your chances of becoming a victim?  Quite a lot actually.

Chris Mathers will explain  who exactly the bad guys are, what they’re trying to do, and how you can protect yourself and your organization from becoming the next headline. --

Testimonials

I've known Chris for years. From the first time I met him in Panama (see the chapter on Noriega, where Chris talks about the hotel we stayed in having been purchased with drug money!), I've come to respect and admire him as not only the best connected guy in this business, but one of the most entertaining and knowledgeable writers and speakers on international criminal organizations and money laundering techniques.
