Cifas runs events for its members, law enforcement and other fraud prevention experts, with high-profile speakers and demonstrations of cutting-edge technology.

We specialise in bringing together fraud and financial crime prevention professionals from all sectors to share intelligence and debate the latest trends.

Our events offer excellent networking opportunities for our members, other industry experts and our police and public sector partners. Cifas members can also benefit from a range of events in their region.

The theme of this year's conference was Preparing the battlefield: The war against fraud and financial crime. It featured a range of speakers providing delegates with the intelligence and expertise needed to understand the challenges and opportunities for organisations, and develop an effective counter-attack on current and future fraud threats.

  • BBC Radio 4 financial expert Paul Lewis
  • Cifas chairman Lady Barbara Judge
  • Head of National Police Chiefs' Council Sara Thornton
  • Sky UK's Nina Barakzai
  • BT Security's Mark Hughes
  • Lloyds' Brian Dilley

The Annual Conference will return in June 2018.
