Intelligencia Training secures key role in campaign against fraud

Security specialists Intelligencia Training have been selected to play a key role in the UK’s battle against fraud.

The company, which specialises in data analysis and online security, has been chosen to develop intelligence personnel working with Financial Fraud Action UK (FFA UK).

Financial Fraud Action UK is responsible for leading the collective fight against financial fraud on behalf of the UK payments industry. Members include banks, credit, debit and charge card issuers and card payment acquirers in the UK.

Its aims include providing a cohesive industry voice on financial fraud and leading collaborative industry-wide activity to prevent and control the crime.

FFA UK are using Intelligencia to develop a number of their specialist intelligence personnel to further develop their specialist skills and techniques.

Catriona Still, Fraud External Stakeholder Manager at FFA UK, said: “We are happy to be working in conjunction with Intelligencia Training using the Level 4 Diploma in Intelligence Operations as a method to develop further the intelligence and analytical skills of key personnel.

“With financial fraud and cyber-crime becoming the fastest growing crime in the UK we welcome the opportunity to raise our own internal skill set and knowledge using the most current techniques in intelligence analysis. The ability to share intelligence with our strategic partners will play a vital role in the reduction of financial crime.”

Nick Atkinson, Intelligencia’s Commercial Director, said: “The opportunity to work alongside FFA UK was an excellent opportunity for us to demonstrate how more effective use of intelligence analysis skills can add considerable value within the finance and insurance sectors.

“The cutting edge programmes and nationally recognised qualifications have been widely utilised with British Military Intelligence and have recently been adopted within a growing number of non-military sectors including banking, insurance, custodial & judicial as well as within the public sector.

“These sectors all rely heavily upon gathering, interpreting and effective use of intelligence and data to make effective business decisions. By working together we hope to be in a position to help FFA UK and their strategic partners to help reduce financial crime.”
