Commenting on the event, a specialism of Retail Knowledge, Paul Bessant, Managing Director said: “Retail Fraud is certainly one of the hottest topics for retailers today, because by tackling fraud in all its complexities, retailers can see immediate bottom line savings. There is no doubt that fraud, whether physical, electronic, organised or casual from staff or customers is one area that has traditionally been paid little more than lip service. Retailers now simply must invest in systems and solutions that will combat fraud and loss and by doing so, save themselves millions of pounds.
