London Fraud Forum tenth anniversary conference

Date: Thursday 13th October 2016
Venue: One Great George Street, London SW1

I invite you to the tenth anniversary conference of the London Fraud Forum.  Having sat on the board since the inception of the forum I feel very honoured and humble to hold the position of Chairman in this our tenth year.  Ten years is no mean feat, and this has only been possible with the support of you as members. 

While we continue to grow as an organisation we must embrace the changing world of fraud.  Let’s face it:  who would have imagined ten years ago that computers would play such a huge part in our lives - let alone that “cyber” would be the main enabler for fraudsters?  One thing doesn’t change, however:  ten years on, fraud continues to cause massive harm to our society.  The risks seem to increase almost daily, and yet fraud is still seen as a “victimless” crime by the perpetrators. 

A huge amount is being undertaken by you as analysts, managers and directors within the anti-fraud community.  However, we still need to continually strive to change the public’s perceptions of and attitudes towards fraud and its enablers, while also ensuring that we stay at the top of our game in combating the continual “improvement” of fraudsters’ abilities and tactics. 

So, it is imperative that we carry on the valuable work of the past ten years, and continue to work together to combat fraud.  The London Fraud Forum will therefore keep up its work by bringing together counter-fraud specialists from across the spectrum, be it public or private sector, banking, law enforcement or academia, to share ideas, experiences and best practice. 

Once again our annual conference has a programme of excellent speakers, covering the latest topics and sharing their insights with you to help you in your day-to-day job of combating fraud.  We are delighted to welcome Kweku Adoboli as our keynote speaker this year:  Kweku is the former UBS trader who served seven years in prison, having taken responsibility for losses incurred by the bank amounting to $2.2 billion.  He is keen to share the lessons his experience presents to the anti-fraud community. 

We also have important updates from the City of London Police, the Joint Fraud Task Force and the Global Cyber Alliance - as well as insights into the link between fraud and terrorism, the growing use of social engineering to commit fraud, and how blockchain technologies are set to impact on fraud prevention in the future

Plus, of course, our popular interactive breakout sessions - this year offering you the choice between discussions on bribery and corruption, cybercrime, using social media for investigation and anti-money laundering.

Our conference is always extremely popular as it is an ideal opportunity for both existing London Fraud Forum members and those new to the organisation to meet and network with fellow anti-fraud practitioners.  So please do not delay in applying for a place.  The conference delegate fee of only £175 + VAT includes a year’s membership of the organisation - so continues to represent amazingly good value! 

We very much hope you will to want to join your fellow anti-fraud professionals from the London and South East region and beyond, to ensure that we continue to combine all our efforts in strengthening the fight against financial crime.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
