Speaking at the seventh Prove-ID conference for Fraud Prevention Professionals, Vernon Coaker MP outlined his support for the fraud prevention community.
Mr Coaker stressed the importance of the National Fraud Strategic Authority (NFSA) which will create a nationwide policy of fraud. The NFSA will oversee the National Fraud Reporting Centre and National Fraud Intelligence Bureau will aims to improve the intelligence available to law enforcement, enabling more targeted operations.
Also mentioned in the speech is support for Fraud Data Sharing, which Mr Coaker said is: "crucial to tackling fraud".
The speech also mentions two new initiatives; the Policing Green Paper and a new campaign from APACS, IMRG and the BRC. Mr Coaker urged retailers to get behind the campaign which aims to raise awareness of using cards online safely, whilst stressing that shopping online is convenient and safe.
