CFCA 2015 Global Fraud Loss Survey Now Open

The Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA) has invited telcos to respond to its 2015 Global Fraud Loss Survey. To participate, follow this link.

The CFCA’s fraud survey tends to be run every other year, and is well established. It is a respected indicator of trends in global fraud.

Jacob Howell, chair of the CFCA’s Information & Research Committee, stated:

The objective of the Global Fraud Loss Survey is to capture a broad view of how much revenue the industry is losing, where it is being lost and what you think the future holds.

This survey has become a key benchmark for the industry and can aid you as an organization understand the world wide picture on fraud across services and regions, and your participation can provide benefits to yourself and the industry.

He went on to observe:

The results of this survey can be used as a tool to forecast workloads and financials within the industry, to plan purchases or for system development and to justify business costs to Executive and Senior Management.

The survey results will also provide industry professionals with benchmark information for comparison analysis. A summary of the survey results will be released to the media. The full details of the survey results will only be available to the CFCA membership and related associations that participated in the survey.

The CFCA notes that the survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Anonymity is guaranteed, as names and organizations will not be identifiable from the responses received, or attached to the completed survey when it is submitted.

The survey will remain open until 15th June, 2015.
