Counter Fraud in HE Conference 2017


This year's conference saw 115 counter-fraud colleagues from universities across the UK travelling to the Grand Connaught Rooms in Holborn, London, on Monday 6th March. Building on the success of last year's event, the conference included a mixture of plenary and interactive breakout sessions, providing thought provoking and challenging insight into a wide range of fraud issues affecting universities. These include sessions on internal counter-fraud communication, fraud risk management and governance, testing counter-fraud procedures and measures, anti-money laundering, making the most of frauds when they do occur, basic forensics, asset and inventory fraud, and more.
