Meeting Format


There are 4 meetings a year for the FPN each of one-day duration.

Meeting Format

Meetings run from approximately 9.30am to 3.30pm. Refreshments and lunch are provided.

Challenging & Instructive Agendas

The Forum members have significant input into meeting agendas, to ensure that sessions are relevant and cover key areas of common interest.

Interactive Delivery

Sessions take the form of workshops and discussions rather than lecture-style presentations wherever possible. We source and invite knowledgeable subject experts in order to ensure that content is of the highest standard.

It’s different because…

Meetings are eligible for the CICM’s CPD Scheme and attract 5 points.



Membership Information

Who is the forum for?

  • Professionals of all levels who have the responsibility for fraud prevention in their company
  • Members from cross-industry businesses in the UK

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.

The FPN will provide:

  • A quarterly meeting of workshops, discussions and presentations where members will meet with their counterparts from other industries as well as experts in the fields of fraud prevention and investigation.
  • Support the members with a working hour help desk and support line
  • Members access to the Forums International website where they will have access to the latest news and advice, a secure members area where we will host presentations and workshop results
  • Access to a secure members communication channel where they can exchange information with their counterparts
  • A global network of fraud prevention specialists and investigators

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.

Attending the FPN for the first time is free.

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


The annual membership fee is £750 and covers all administration and meeting costs. Members are responsible for their own accommodation and travel costs.

Our memberships are company memberships and two people can attend each meeting.

Meetings are eligible for the CICM’s CPD and attracts 5 points/hours

A LinkedIn group have been established, membership of which is strictly limited to forum members and genuine prospective members.

Membership is not just about meetings

We encourage members to draw on the network of peers provided by the Forum between meetings.

There is an established electronic communications channel for members to ask questions and stay in touch with each other.

The website has a secure members area, from where copies of all meeting presentation slides and workshop outputs are also available to download. Also, via the knowledge hub, members can ask each other questions and share experiences.

It’s different because…

The membership is a genuine peer group – the forum is open to invited companies.



Fraud Prevention Network (FPN)


Originally formed in early 2000s the Fraud Prevention Network has gone through many name changes and owners.

As of January 2019, the FPN is being re-launched with our Corporate Partners Graydon UK and DLA Piper.

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

The forum is aimed at the B2B community with the primarily aim to assist its members in the prevention and/or reduction in their losses caused by criminal activity.

The forum will provide the members with practical tools and solutions they need to meet the challenges of the current business environment.

The FPN will be the “Go-To Place” when members need help.

It’s different because…

This is not an ad-hoc event with business development aims, but a genuine and lasting community of peers with common interests and goals.
