The UK’s battle against insurance fraud - a detective's view

by BAE Systems Applied Intelligence | Best Practice

John Beadle has spent decades working with insurers, law enforcement and the UK government to tackle and defeat insurance fraud. A former New Scotland Yard detective, he’s been a pivotal figure in the creation of the General Insurance Council and the Insurance Fraud Council, and Head of Fraud at Royal Sun Alliance.

Hear John’s observations on how UK insurers and law enforcement have stepped up to the task of taking on fraud over the last few years – and the value of open and friendly cooperation to get the job done.

About BAE Systems Applied Intelligence

We have been helping to defend the largest nations and businesses in the world for over forty years against advanced threats.

Cyber threats no longer just come from mischievous hackers playing games. They come from organised, smart, stealthy criminal groups and nations, looking to steal intelligence and capital. Attacks pioneered by nation states are now being used to attack businesses of all sizes and standard security technology has dropped in effectiveness from 80% to 20% over the past 10 years.

Additionally criminals are taking advantage of modern communications and computing techniques to plan and conduct their crimes. The techniques and tools that enable business and law enforcement to detect, prevent and investigate crime – both in the physical and cyber worlds – are in the process of rapid adaption.
