Secretariat

Cifas, the UK’s fraud prevention service is providing secretariat for the APPG.

Cifas is a not-for-profit fraud prevention membership organisation. We are the UK’s leading fraud prevention service, managing the largest confirmed fraud database in the country. Our members are organisations from all sectors, sharing their data across those sectors to reduce instances of fraud and financial crime.

Throughout the UK, our experts and services help protect individuals and organisations from the growing and increasingly sophisticated threat of fraud and financial crime. Since 1988, Cifas has helped its members and customers protect themselves from billions of pounds worth of fraud losses.

With every organisation that becomes a Cifas member, or with whom we collaborate, we establish a tougher environment for fraudsters – both externally and within your organisation. Using the simple tools of communication and sharing information, we are able to shine a light on their activities for all our members and partners to see.

For members of the public we offer increased security against identity fraud, as well as expert advice on how to protect your personal data in our increasingly tech-reliant world.
