Speakers Announced for London Fraud Forum 14th Annual ‘Virtual’ Conference

London Fraud Forum (LFF), the organisation for London’s counter-fraud community, has announced the keynote speaker line up for its 14th Annual ‘Virtual’ Conference. This popular industry event, which attracts counter fraud professionals from both private and public sectors, will take place on Thursday 22nd October 2020.

Due to the impact of Covid19, the conference will run as a virtual event. The virtual conference will feature all of the usual areas for delegates to explore with a main stage, breakout sessions, networking and expo.

An impressive lineup of Keynote speakers and talks on the day will include; Ian Dyson, Commissioner for City of London Police; Lord Maude, Former Cabinet Minister and Founder of FMA; John Penrose, MP & the Prime Minister’s Anti-Corruption Champion; Chris Atkins, Filmmaker & Author of ‘A Bit of a Stretch:The Diaries of a Prisoner’; Ashley Hart, Head of Fraud at TSB; Brittany Kaiser, Cambridge Analytica whistleblower & Co-Founder of Own Your Data Foundation; Matthew Wagstaff, Head of Fraud & Corruption at the UK Serious Fraud Office; and Kath Doyle, Deputy Director, Fraud Investigation Service, HMRC.

The event which is sponsored by LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Pindrop is designed to bring public and private sector counter fraud professionals together to share knowledge and raise awareness of the latest fraud types and trends as well as outlining the ways in which they can be combatted.

In addition to the talks, delegates can participate in their choice of interactive breakout sessions, network with peers, and meet with exhibitors offering the latest counter fraud technology solutions;  all within a virtual environment.

Robert Brooker, LFF Chair comments: “We are delighted to be able to continue to hold our annual conference this year as a virtual event. We are using a sophisticated virtual venue which offers delegates, and exhibitors all of the usual in-person conference benefits whilst ensuring they can enjoy the day in a comfortable and safe environment.

“This year we have more great speakers than ever before, and we’ll also introduce panel sessions on 21st Century Fraud and Whistleblowing. With fraud already costing the UK hundreds of billions of pounds every year and this figure growing in the wake of Covid19, it’s never been more important for public and private sectors to come together to share knowledge and best practice to help combat the ever evolving types of fraud and increasingly sophisticated fraudsters.

“The conference has become a fixture in the calendar for the breadth of counter fraud insight and experience shared by leaders from all sectors ensuring that each delegate goes away armed with the latest know-how in the ever-changing fight against fraud.”

The London Fraud Forum Annual Conference is a sell-out event each year, attracting circa 200 delegates. The delegate ticket price for the conference also includes a 12-month London Fraud Forum membership, providing access to a network of counter fraud professionals, as well as webinars, quarterly breakfast seminars and workshops, making it a hugely valuable ticket, and a must-attend event for anyone serious about fighting fraud.

A limited number of early bird tickets are currently available at £220 (inc. vat).
