Welcome to the iSMTA and our Modern Fraud Prevention Professional Training course at Level 5, which is certified by Industry Qualifications (IQ) who are approved by qualification regulators in the UK.
Fraud Prevention training has been a necessary part of business for a long time. The need to protect the business, its brand reputation, its people, its profits and its financial secrets is critical, the value of which is often only recognised when something goes wrong. Every business, or individual, will be protected by some type of Fraud Prevention measures, with most measures being so normal that they are a simple part of our everyday lives. The chip and pin protocol for credit cards, passwords for computers, security questions when we call our banks, are just some examples.
Another feature of Fraud Prevention and its training is that it needs to be ever-changing, to adapt to evolving threats, to changing business needs and to our ever-changing world. Fraud Prevention must continue to modernise to maintain the value and effectiveness. Those employed to advise on Fraud Prevention, need to keep modern too. Having qualified through this programme is an excellent way to be a Modern Fraud Prevention Professional and provides a perfect pathway to further Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
