Charity fraud Awareness

19 October, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm BST


By OSCR, in association with the Cyber Scotland Partnership

This free online event, hosted by the OSCR in association with the Cyber Scotland Partnership, will have some great hints and tips on how you can avoid your charity or voluntary sector organisation becoming a victim. We will be joined in conversation with guest speaker Dave Carter,  the Head of Counter Fraud Management at the British Council.

Guest speaker

Dave Carter, Head of Counter Fraud Management, British Council
Dave has been Head of Counter Fraud for two major international charities, including his current role in the British Council, where he was recruited to design, build and then run their global counter fraud functions. In both organisations, Dave had global responsibility for fraud and crime management, including awareness raising, reporting and detecting, responding and prevention – plus leading on investigations. He devised and implemented the key strategies which allowed for this risk to be managed in hostile environments, and on occasions during the worst humanitarian disasters that have occurred in modern times. Travelling extensively, Dave built a global team to support the operational function, to provide reassurance to trustees and donors, and to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory responsibilities.
