The Fraud Intelligence Sharing System (FISS) is our central industry database – an extremely secure, flexible and cost-effective intelligence system designed to support the card and retail banking industries in the fight against fraud.
It can be used to identify linkages and patterns in frauds, insights from which support the police, thereby playing an important role in protecting consumers.
Members submit a range of information on fraud, which offers the benefit of sector-wide intelligence in a flexible format.
This helps the industry and the police tackle those responsible and strengthen the defences.
Importantly, the system allows us to supply fraud data and intelligence collated by the payments industry to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB), which informs law enforcement activity in the UK.
