Paycasso, a firm specialising in fraud and cyber, has joined the Conveyancing Association as an affiliate member for a two year term.
The CA has published a strategic plan focusing on using technology to verify the identity of customers efficiently, manage risks associated with money laundering and meeting regulatory requirements.
Affiliate members are able to attend select CA Management Committee (MCM) and All Member Meetings (AMM) as well as the association’s national conference and dinner.
Lloyd Davies, operations director at the Conveyancing Association, said: “As always with our Affiliate members we are looking for like-minded firms and organisations that can not only support the work that we carry out, but can input in to that work, and provide relevant solutions for our member firms.
“Having seen the product suite offered by Paycasso and the preventative impact they can have on combating identity fraud, we believe we have an Affiliate member that is breaking new ground in this area.
“Our Cyberfraud and Fraud Protocol are at the heart of our work in this area and we are looking forward to working with the Paycasso team to ensure their expertise leads to our firms having the strongest of protections in place.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome them as our newest Affiliate members and I’m sure our member firms will see the real and tangible benefit of their involvement with their trade body over the months to come.”
Russell S. King, Paycasso’s chief executive, said: “On behalf of Paycasso, we are delighted to be welcomed by The Conveyancing Association, its leadership and members.
“This is an industry body that has broad and active support from its entire membership, consistently demonstrates its ability to deliver on its mandate – ‘enhancing the conveyancing process’ – but ultimately has continued focus on driving safety and security for the consumer.
“We certainly look forward to lending our support to both the association leadership and its membership in delivering this ongoing objective.”
