What the UK's fraud prevention community has to say
'Being a member of Cifas is important for my own organisation, but equally important is the fact we are helping other organisations and individuals across the UK help themselves protect themselves from fraud.'
Ian Walker, Head of Financial Crime, Skipton Building Society
'First and foremost, the biggest benefit to me is the benefit to my bottom line – being a member of Cifas delivers savings. I also get the opportunity to meet with colleagues across other industries and share intelligence that really helps our customers.'
Alistair Urquhart, Head of Fraud and IT Security, Telefonica UK
'As we help more than half a million people each year, handling over £400 million pounds of client money, we feel it is important to work with Cifas to ensure that we can protect our clients – many of whom are vulnerable people – from fraud. We value our relationship with Cifas very much.'
Mike O’Connor CBE, Chief Executive, StepChange Debt Charity
'Policing cannot deal with fraud and economic crime on its own – the only way to tackle the threat is by working together across the sectors. Cifas is one of our most important strategic partners: we constantly share data to help prevent and fight fraud. Working with Cifas allows us to analyse frauds taking place in the UK and across the world and use that data to support our investigations.'
Chris Greany, former National Coordinator for Economic Crime
