COVID-19 has created a boom time for criminals who seek to deceive for financial and personal gain. These scammers and fraudsters, who've been out in force leveraging the insecurities created by COVID-19 and the power of digital technology, have launched millions of websites, email, investment employee, supply chain and charity scams. In response, governments, businesses, academia, and the third sector from across the globe have come together to counter these criminal activities. This episode brings unique perspectives and approaches to international counter fraud, with a focus on UK, New Zealand and Australia. Guests include Julie Read, Director and Chief Executive at the Serious Fraud Office in New Zealand, Mark Cheeseman OBE, Director of the UK Government Counter Fraud Function, and Andrew Walter, First Assistant Secretary at the Integrity and Security Division at the Attorney-General’s Department.
