Cifas collaborates with public, private and law enforcement partners to prevent, detect and disrupt fraud, money laundering and wider financial crime.
Collaboration and partnerships with Cifas
We facilitate the sharing of data between more than 400 organisations in order to prevent and detect fraud. Alongside this, we also work in partnership with organisations from the public and private sectors on a wide range of projects and initiatives, including but not limited to:
Public sector, police and law enforcement partners share data with us and our members for the purposes of the prevention and detection of crime. This data includes, but is not limited to, false and Fraudulently Obtained Genuine (FOG) identity documentation which, when shared, disrupts criminality and helps organisations to meet their public policy objectives.
We also work with partners in the public sector to identify where data can be used to better support public policy objectives and protect our members from fraud.
We work with a range of partners on bespoke projects which prevent, detect and disrupt crime. For example, Cifas is the technology partner of the Home Office in delivering the banking provisions of the Immigration Act 2014.
We supply Cifas members’ fraud reports to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) on a daily basis, to support the development of crime packages disseminated to UK police for investigation and enforcement.
Our crime data is also supplied to the National Crime Agency (NCA) and police to support specific operations into a spectrum of criminality, including suspected money laundering, fraud, corrupt professionals, and other types of serious and organised crime. We are a trusted partner to the Home Office, NCA, City of London and Metropolitan Police in the pursuit of financial crime.
