IN FOCUS: Disrupting identity and document fraud

The fight against identity fraud is a constant battle between the authorities and the fraudsters. But, in today’s uncertain world, the stakes have never been higher. At one end of the scale, citizens face economic loss and disruption, with governments facing risks to national security at the other. The focus of this practical session is to identify effective ways to unearth and disrupt identity fraud networks, and to consider ways to combat fraud in action.
