NEFF Membership


The NEFF is aiming to continue the success of the past years by delivering a service that is complimentary to the needs of our members.

We are actively involved with our regional law enforcement and together with a wide range of national / government bodies we aim to help raise awareness of the latest developments in fraud, financial crime and cybercrime for the benefit of our members in the Region.

The NEFF will continue to deliver a range of unique and varied events over the next membership year, and will as usual, attempt to tailor them to the needs of our members. To support us in achieving that goal, we are very interested in understanding the problems that are affecting you and your business in the Region and would like to hear from you regarding ideas for these events.

Privacy Notice

The North East Fraud Forum takes privacy and the protection of its client data very seriously. On 25 May 2018, a new Europe-wide data protection regulation comes into effect: the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). GDPR seeks to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals whose personal information is processed within the European Union and grants new and enhanced rights for those individuals in relation to their personal information.

The North East Fraud Forum attaches the highest priority to the security of our members and customers assets and information and will continue to do so going forward. The North East Fraud Forum has been actively working to implement the changes required to be ready for GDPR.

GDPR increases and strengthens the rights of individuals in relation to the information we hold about them. Being transparent and providing accessible information to customers about how we process their personal information is a key element of the new regulation.

We encourage you to read the Privacy Notice detailed on the North East Fraud Forum website which provides a summary of what we do with the personal information of our clients in order to service our business. It also provides more information about the enhanced rights of individuals and how to exercise them.

The North East Fraud Forum recognises the importance of the appropriate and secure treatment of member / customer information and support the enhancements to data protection which the GDPR will introduce. The changes described in this communication serve only to enhance and clarify the rights of individuals arising from your relationship with us.

Please note that where required, we will adhere to applicable legal and regulatory data protection requirements in any jurisdiction in which we are established for the purposes of those requirements (“Local Jurisdiction”). To the extent that this Privacy Notice conflicts with the data protection requirements in any Local Jurisdiction, the data protection requirements of that Local Jurisdiction will take precedence.

If you are a corporate entity, you must notify your employees, beneficial owners and associated persons that we may process their personal data and draw their attention to this Privacy Notice and any changes made to it from time to time.
