The Summit brings together the key players in fraud prevention to present their expertise and experience to the business community.

Experts from the Metropolitan Police, APACS and the Home Office will be speaking at the Summit, highlighting the latest ID fraud initiatives, plus providing an up-to-the-minute overview of the growing threat of identity fraud.

The latest market information, regulatory issues, policies and technology solutions will also be presented and delegates will have the opportunity to find out about best practices for responding to individual incidents of fraud.

Key speakers include Bruce Hansen, chairman and CEO of ID Analytics, Inc, Andy Burnham MP, parliamentary under secretary of state at the Home Office and DCI Stuart Dark of the Metropolitan Police.

The Summit will also feature a key address from Sue Woods, head of ID services for Equifax who will examine the solutions and tools in mitigating fraud risk.

Woods says: “It is essential that business and industry continues to have an open forum to tackle the threat of ID fraud. The Identity Fraud
Summit aims to do just that. As a leading force in anti-fraud solutions, Equifax welcomes this chance for UK businesses to come together helping them understand the problem and gain an insight into the solutions.”
