The theme of this event is, 'Fraud and Businesses in the South West: Risks and Recent Developments.' Fraud is the most prevalent crime in the UK, accounting for 41% of all criminal activity in 2022.

The event will feature an external speaker from the South West Fraud Forum (SWFF) and Dr Samantha Bourton from UWE Bristol Law School. 

The first part of the talk will focus on the contemporary fraud threats that businesses in the South West are likely to encounter. The second part of the talk will discuss recent developments in fraud prevention. This includes the release of the UK’s Fraud Strategy earlier this year and the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill, which will be enacted towards the end of 2023. The Bill will introduce a failure to prevent offence, which will hold companies criminally liable for failing to prevent fraud.

The SWFF will emphasise the impact of these important developments on businesses in the region, including the need for greater awareness and training.

A light breakfast will be provided and there will be plenty of opportunity for networking.
