International Counter Fraud Data Analytics Conference 2020
The Cabinet Office will host an international conference on fighting fraud in digital economies.
- The conference will showcase how the UK and US use innovative data analytics to combat fraud and improper payment.
- Attendees will include international leaders and practitioners in counter fraud, data analytics and audit from the public and private sectors.
- Topics for discussion include building public sector counter fraud data analytics capability, procurement and digital identity fraud.
The UK Cabinet Office will host a two-day conference focusing on the innovative use of data and data analytics in the fight against fraud.
Chief Executive of the UK Civil Service, John Manzoni, announced the event today. It will take place in Manchester, UK, on 3 and 4 March. Manchester provides a fitting setting for the event as it was home to Alan Turing, a pioneer in computer science and artificial intelligence.
Keynote speeches at the event will be given by speakers from the UK and US Governments, including the UK Counter Fraud Centre of Expertise, the US Treasury, and the US Government Accountability Office. The conference will also provide exhibition space to network and learn more about counter fraud and data analytical tools and initiatives.
The event will showcase the UK and US Governments’ innovative data analytics work and explore new and innovative approaches to equipping the public sector to fight the fraudulent practices of tomorrow in increasingly data-driven economies.
John Manzoni, Chief Executive of the UK Civil Service, said:
I’m delighted to announce the first ever joint Counter Fraud Data Analytics Conference. The event will bring together leading minds from around the globe and provides a great example of joined up work being done by the UK and US governments to combat fraud.
The Cabinet Office Counter Fraud Centre of Expertise works across the UK Government to understand the risk posed by fraud and financial crime and then to work with public bodies to support them in understanding, finding and stopping fraud against the public sector. A key part of its work explores the use of data and data analytics to find and prevent fraud by running pilots, operational services and collating best practice guidance.
The conference will centre on four themes:
- data analytics innovation
- building data analytics counter fraud capability in the public sector
- procurement fraud
- identity fraud
