WE FIGHT FRAUD LIVE
We Fight Fraud Live is WFF’s annual conference event.
WFFL2021 will take place on April 28th. Speakers and agenda will be announced soon. Please contact us for sponsorship opportunities.
WFFL brings together top representatives from business, law enforcement and academia, up-to-the-minute criminal intelligence on emerging threats and solutions to create a platform to share unique insights.
Launched in 2020, the first WFF Live event saw 500 people from around the world register to share knowledge on fraud, loss and crime during Covid. And as seen through the eyes of criminals. See below for details.
Retail, financial, building and law. Managing Directors/founders, Loss Prevention Officers, Chief Technology Officers, Chief Information Officers, Chief Information Security Officers, IT directors.
For anyone concerned about their company’s security, small or large, whatever-sector.
Covid-19 has created unprecedented opportunities for criminals. This online conference brought together leading law enforcers, subject experts and ex-criminals (including, a fraudster, a senior mafia figure and a hacker) to give businesses the insider knowledge they need to prevent and fight fraud. It is believed to be the first time a group like this has appeared in public to help protect the public and business.
This important event addressed a genuine need for businesses to understand why emerging criminal threats caused by the Coronavirus crisis mean they must re-think their physical and cyber security. The conference included a number of virtual ‘booths’ where hand picked vendors offered technical advice and solutions.

Fraud doesn’t just impact on your bottom line, the reputational damage can be just as costly to a business. Well-managed a reputational crisis can enhance a business, badly managed and the business will never recover. Anne Cantelo has been on the frontline of critical PR for several decades and her advice has been invaluable to many companies dealing with a crisis.
