Local flavour, global focus at 2018 Fraud Summit






The Fraud Summit 2018 promises so much more than issues around fraud, says Manie van Schalkwyk, Executive Director, Southern African Fraud Prevention Service.

“Some of our content is around machine learning, consumer behaviour, data management cybercrime and so much more under the broad theme Cooperation vs Collaboration.”

Taking place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Rosebank on 24 and 25 July, The Southern African Fraud Prevention Service in association with the Insurance Crime Bureau Fraud Summit 2018 opens with a keynote address from prolific activist Magda Wierzycka, CEO Sygnia Group followed by a presentation on machine learning from Lee Naik of TransUnion.

This year the conference organisers have elected to go with local flavour and global relevance as many of its speakers represent multi-nationals and are high calibre content specialists. 

“With well-known personality Ruda Landman as programme director, we are in for a bumper conference that comes complete with globally relevant content and unbeatable home-grown charisma,” says Van Schalkwyk.

A panel discussion is set for the late morning and will focus on data leaks and how best to protect personal identification.  Advocate Pansy Tlakula (Information Regulator - POPI Act) will provide delegates with expert insights to create a better understanding around leaks and how this impacts consumers.

Garth de Klerk, CEO of Insurance Crime Bureau lifts the tone in the afternoon with his dry sense of humour and stories about multiple death claims against a single policy, and other fascinating tales that make insurance fraud one of the most challenging and interesting areas of this type of crime.

The first day closes with a deep look into international trends with SAFPS expert, Roy Retief, operations manager.

The second day kicks off with an enlightening session in which Garth and Manie will expand on the manner in which their two organisations are finding ways to cooperate and collaborate.  Day two also takes a look at the vastly expanding area of cybercrime with Veronica Schmitt. Schmitt is a digital forensic scientist and partner at DFirLabs.

Virtual currencies, brand new to the conference content, with Piet Le Roux of Afribusiness and a look at healthcare fraud, waste and abuse presented by Marius Smit of Discovery Health, will occupy the late morning slot.

Ravin Sanjith who is a programme director at Opus Research will share his knowledge and expertise on the topic of Fraud Defences in the age of Exponent Digital Commerce.

Camilla Naidoo, a fraud specialist at Afrocentric Health will present a comprehensive study of syndicated and cross industry fraud, as the last item of the programme.

The conference welcomes delegates from a cross section of retail and corporate business. Insurance Crime Bureau’s De Klerk adds: “This is not just for the insurance and banking industry; issues around fraud are sector wide and universal.”
