    This year, fraud is the single biggest crime type in the UK and it has grown over the last decade unlike any other crime.  It is the volume crime of our time.  That has happened for several reasons, but the internet has played a big part and has enabled fraud to take place at a volume that could not be done before.  The challenges posed by the lack of focus from law enforcement in times of austerity means strategic priorities have been concentrated elsewhere.  So how do we fix this?  RUSI proposes a fundamentally different pathway for responding to the problem.  The Fraud Women's Network is delighted to have Helena Wood, one of the main authors of the paper The Silent Threat: The Impact of Fraud on UK National Security, discuss those proposals.  Helena has been busy during lockdown researching the future of economic crime policing in the UK and assessing the impact of the Integrated Review on serious and organised crime.  She will also touch on these topics during the session. 

    If you like the sound of this session, then RUSI's podcast, financial crime insights is definitely worthy of a listen.
