With widespread budgetary challenges, we must find new ways to adapt to the sophisticated nature of fraud and the scale of it. With renewed efforts to tackle fraud across government it is hoped that detection versus total government expenditure will exceed current levels of 0.02%

The Fraud and Error Conference is always a great place to network in order to improve areas of business. It always re-motivates me to return to work and drive the Anti-Fraud message forward for another year. This years was particularly good, the content was relevant and useful. The venue was excellent and the organisation was very good.
