The Institute of Counter Fraud Specialists {ICFS) was founded as a result of the United Kingdom Government's initiative to professionalise public sector fraud investigation.

The Institute exists to further the cause of fraud prevention and detection across all sectors of the UK and abroad.

The membership of the ICFS is made up of Accredited Counter Fraud Specialists who have successfully completed the government's Professionalism in Security (PinS) training, and in collaboration with the National Health Service, Local Authorities and other public and private sector bodies, the institute has aimed to raise the standards of professional fraud investigation in the UK. The ICFS has worked with the University of Portsmouth and its Institute of Criminal Justice Studies to develop academic courses specialising in counter fraud, corruption and criminal justice studies[1]
