Future trends in fraud

Spotlights on fraud

In this session, senior experts will outline key fraudulent trends within specific parts of the insurance industry. Find out how these trends are evolving and what measures are being taken to combat them

Motor

With the upcoming changes to the personal injury laws in the UK, this presentation will dive into the wider impact the legislation will have on insurance fraud. Will we see a shift towards different scams across the UK and Europe? What can insurers do to ready themselves?

Tom Gardiner, Head of Fraud, Aviva

Cyber

Cyber crime is a major driver behind the growth of cyber insurance. However, the same Internet-enabled anonymity that protects those responsible for these crimes also makes this class of insurance an easy target for fraudsters. In this presentation, delegates will learn of some of the ways cyber insurance fraud can be carried out, as well as some of the steps insurers can take to pre-empt and identify potentially fraudulent claims.

Craig Dunn, Head of Cyber Services, Hiscox

On-demand insurance

In the age of insurance innovation and customer-centricity, on-demand insurance has the potential to be one of the biggest growth areas in the industry. But what does this mean for fraud? Delegates will find out how on-demand offerings have affected fraud rates and what insurers should do to adapt?
