D&B Fraud Risk Network

Join forces with Dun & Bradstreet’s Certified Fraud Examiners and cross-industry peers to fight fraud together

Collaboration is Key to Combat Fraud

As fraudsters and bad actors continue to collaborate and exchange information and tactics, fraud is becoming more complex, sophisticated, and difficult for businesses to detect. Industry silos and lack of information sharing between organizations have allowed fraud to proliferate within and across industries.

Breaking down these silos and sharing intelligence with industry peers in the collective fight against fraud is essential to beating fraudsters at their own game.
