UK business is constantly being targeted and exploited by serious organised criminals, with the potential loss from fraud and money laundering alone running into billions of pounds every year.
SOCA works with the private sector to improve understanding of the threats faced by industry and shares information to help protect UK businesses. We also develop collaborative responses to serious threats affecting business.
Company reputation, consumer confidence and staff corruption are just some of the major risks. To help protect your business, SOCA works closely with industry to minimise these harms. We do this by engaging with private sector stakeholders, regulators and practitioners at every level in order to deny and frustrate criminal activities across the UK.
Our interests don’t stop at the borders either. SOCA’s reach extends internationally through our foreign law enforcement partners and overseas liaison network.
Using our industry contacts, we provide specific targeted information in the form of SOCA Alerts. These are designed to inform and warn of emerging risks or threats in an effort to reduce the harm caused by organised crime.
