International Fraud Prevention Conference 2019

Fighting Fraud through Technology & Collaboration

A multi-sectoral model to combat fraud

Fraud is the last great unreduced business cost. Globally, fraud is costing €3.8 trillion annually, a sum which is the equivalent to the combined GDP of the UK and Italy.

The International Fraud Prevention Conference (IFPC) 2019 brings together the top international experts and speakers in the field to address the problem of fraud in the private and public sectors. The conference is aimed at C-suite executives from banking, insurance, government, services, technology, utilities and law enforcement.

The conference, which takes place in Dublin on May 17, will look at finding solutions for the growing problem of fraud in all it's guises. IFPC 2019 offers an unparalleled opportunity to gain the knowledge, resources and connections required to step up in the fight against fraud. Sessions and speakers are being added daily.

"We need to develop and disseminate an entirely new paradigm and practice of collaboration that supersedes the traditional silos that have divided governments, philanthropies and private enterprises for decades and replace it with networks of partnerships working together to create a globally prosperous society."
- Simon Mainwaring

Since 2008, there has been a 49.5pc increase in average losses with businesses losing an average of 6.8pc of total expenditure. Driven by technological advances and increasing digitisation, businesses now face a threat which is growing in scale and mutating in complexity. The International Fraud Prevention Conference 2019 brings together the international and local experts to discover solutions to the complex problem of fraud and cybercrime through technology, collaboration and insights.

The objective of the IFP Conference is to create an inter-organisational and inter-agency platform to promote new thinking and a new approach to preventing and combating fraud across all sectors, including State agencies.
