A fraud prevention coordination unit was set up in September 2008 within Crédit Agricole S.A.’s Compliance Department to:
- have an overview of all types of fraud throughout the Group (means of payment, electronic banking, credit, market activities, insurance, etc.);
- coordinate and promote anti-fraud measures.
This unit works in tandem with the other relevant complementary control or support functions: Permanent Control and Risk, Inspectorate/Audit, Legal Affairs and IT and Payment System Security. There are Fraud Prevention Officers who implement and adapt the fraud prevention system to their own Group entity. Reports are submitted so that an annual assessment can be carried out.
