Location: 2 Glass Wharf Bristol BS20EL


Join this webinar from the South West Fraud Forum – Helping regional business and industry to understand and combat the risks posed by fraud

The South West Fraud Forum (SWFF) is delighted to invite you to our first in-person event on 10 March 2023.

This event will include a keynote speech from Chair of the Fraud Act 2006 and Digital Fraud Committee, Baroness Nicky Morgan.

The Rt Hon the Baroness Morgan of Cotes (Nicky Morgan) is a former Conservative MP and Minister. She is now a member of the House of Lords and has a portfolio career with roles across the private and public sectors, including as a Non-Executive Director at Santander UK, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the Association of British Insurers, the Careers & Enterprise Company and is a Trustee of the Science Museum Group.

Nicky also chairs the East Midlands Institute of Technology Board and the Advisory Board of the Reform think tank. In 2022 Nicky was asked to chair the UK Commission on Covid Commemoration. Last year she also chaired a House of Lords Special Inquiry into the Fraud Act 2006 and Digital Fraud – the report was published in November 2022.

Nicky served in the Cabinets of David Cameron and Boris Johnson as, respectively, Minister for Women & Equalities, Education Secretary and Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary. She also chaired the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee for 2 years. She was the Member of Parliament for Loughborough between 2010 and 2019. Before being elected she worked as a solicitor specialising in M&A.

The Committees’ recent report Fighting Fraud: Breaking the Chain has provoked the headline: “The UK has retreated from the fight against fraud” and raises questions of all those involved in the fraud prevention/response community. Therefore, the SWFF is keen to draw its members together to reflect on the challenges and proposals made in the report – with the aim of collective learning from private, public and 3rd sector practitioners.
