What we offer
About the Centre
The Centre for Counter Fraud Studies (CCFS) is one of the specialist research centres of the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, formed in 2009 to accommodate the growing interest in counter fraud that has occurred within the Institute over the last ten years.
Research, publication and the Fraud and Corruption Hub
The Centre aims to collate and present the widest possible range of information regarding fraud and the solutions applied to it, and to undertake and publish further research where needed. Additionally, the Centre's Fraud and Corruption Hub gathers the latest thinking, publications, news and research in one central resource for counter fraud professionals.
Mark Button, Director of the CCFS:
The problem of fraud is underestimated, undervalued and under researched. There is much that can be done to tackle it and central to that is enhancing our knowledge of the problem and what works in reducing it. CCFS has been created to enhance this knowledge and contribute towards a reduction in the problem. I hope you will register with the CCFS to receive further information and become active in the activities we intend to run.
Jim Gee, Chair of Advisory Board:
I am excited by the potential that the Centre for Counter Fraud Studies (CCFS) has to further develop professionalism in the way we tackle fraud and corruption, something that I have worked hard to achieve throughout my career. As Chair of the Centre, I shall be working closely with Dr Mark Button, its Director, to ensure that this potential is realised. Every counter fraud specialist needs the latest knowledge and information to be effective in their work - knowledge really is power in this area! The more we know, the better we can protect our organisations and ensure that resources are used where they should be.
