Counter-Fraud Connections - Edinburgh
Location: Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, High School Yards, Edinburgh, EH1 1LZEvent Description:
In the feedback from the last few years’ counter-fraud events delegates have told us that what they most appreciate are the real-life HE case studies, as well as the opportunities to network with colleagues from across different professional services.
In response, we’ve produced an alternative format for this year’s conference event. Instead of a single, national conference, we’re running three smaller regional ‘Counter-Fraud Connections’. These are afternoon-only events focused on bringing colleagues from different professional services together, with an emphasis on networking to share best practice and discuss how to keep ahead of the counter-fraud threat.
The Edinburgh event will feature:
- A technical update – on changes to anti-money laundering regulation, and the implications for universities of the Criminal Finances Act 2017 (CFA) and the new Corporate Criminal Offence (CCO).
- Case studies from the Universities of Edinburgh and the West of Scotland, on how they are embedding counter-fraud practice within their own institutions by working across professional services, including finance, procurement, estates, IT, HR, and beyond.
- Discussions and Q&A – specific time allocated for topical issues, including fraud prevention, training, and assessing risk
- Networking – an hour’s dedicated networking toward the end of the event, with wine, cheese, beer, and/or another cup of coffee
The events start at 2.30pm, with the main programme finishing at 5pm, followed by an hour of networking until 6pm. There are no limits on the number of colleagues that can attend from a single institution, so please circulate news of the event to colleagues across your professional services. The cost is £99 per delegate, and the deadline for booking is Tuesday 23rd January.
We assume all delegates will be staying for the networking hour between 5pm and 6pm. However, if you are not planning on attending the networking/social hour, please check the tick-box when completing your booking. This will help us arrange the correct refreshments.
If the event is full, please add yourself to the waitlist. Places may become available, and the waitlist will help us to decide if, when, and where we hold future events.
