Fraud – The Fastest Growing Industry

Did you know that the UK economy loses £Billions of pounds every year through fraud. Fraud is one of the fastest growing industries in the UK. We are now running a forum solely dedicated to offer support to fight this growing problem.

Fraud is very much the “fastest growing industry” and fraudsters always seem to be one step ahead. Our goal is to change that pattern through education and support.

On the 16th May 2019 we, Forums International together with our partners Graydon UK, DLA Piper and the CICM held the inaugural meeting of the Fraud Prevention Network (FPN).

The forum is for the B2B community, with the primary aim of keeping up to date with the ever-changing fraud trends and techniques. The quarterly forums are designed to help businesses form a community to combat all types of corporate fraud. The members of the FPN will be able to exchange experiences, knowledge and best practice to prevent and reduce losses caused by criminal activities.

The association of the partners combines legal guidance, technical anti-fraud solutions and practical tools for a network of like-minded professionals and relevant industry experts.

We want to create the FPN to be the ‘go to’ place when our members need help.

The FPN is for professionals of all levels who are responsible for fraud prevention in their company. The only exception is that suppliers aren’t allowed to attend unless they are pre-contracted Corporate Partners or speakers.Our promise to you is: You will never be directly sold to when you attend a forum meeting.

We will be holding quarterly meetings where attendees can expect open discussions, presentations from fraud prevention experts, and specialised workshops – supported by a network of dedicated fraud analysts and investigators – alongside access to secure member’s communication channels and a working hour help desk and support line.

Members will have access to the Forums International website where they will see the latest news and advice together with a secure members area where we will host presentations and workshop results.

Members objectives:

  • Draw on each other’s’ knowledge and experiences.
  • Develop and enhance best and new anti-fraud practices
  • Improve their skill levels
  • Provide access to a network of like-minded professionals and relevant industry experts.

We encourage you to come along and gauge the benefits for yourself before making a commitment to join.
