Why attend Fraud & Error 2019?

Central and local governments combined lose over £20.6 billion a year from fraudulent activity and more than £300 billion of government spending is vulnerable to attack every year.

For 6 years the Fraud and Error conference has connected policy leaders with practitioners and suppliers in an interactive environment to discuss and develop strategies to tackle and prevent fraud.

The one-day conference will cover every aspect of fraud and error in the modern world, from welfare, HMRC and new emerging frauds at a local level to economic crime and the impact the digital age is having on committing, catching and analysing fraud.
