Prevention of Fraud in Travel (PROFiT) was officially launched in 2009 with the sole purpose of preventing fraud in the travel industry. Whether you are a company or a consumer Prevention of Fraud in Travel is here to help you.

Secure our Systems

In partnership with Travel Weekly Prevention of Fraud in Travel has launched an industry-wide campaign aiming to combat the growing menace of cybercrime against travel companies.

Travel firms urged to put a cybercrime recovery plan in place

Logos and images on travel websites can be scammed in ‘seconds’

Travel firms urged to spend more on tech to stop cyberattacks

‘SOS’ campaign launches to fight travel cybercrime

Profit chairman Barry Gooch said the latest campaign, backed by Travel Weekly and to run for seven weeks, would give the industry the tools to fight cyber criminals and protect themselves from attacks including ransomware, email interception, spyware, spoofing and cloned websites.

Hardening the Industry Against Cyber Crime

Prevention of Fraud in Travel works closely with UK policing and we are founding partners of the Global Cyber Alliance. On the 30th May 2017 we launched an initiative to roll out two free tools which will harden business systems and massively reduce the risks of spam, phishing emails, and ransomware attacks.

You may be aware that the UK government intends that all government agencies will use the DMARC solution. The tools are a 'free good' and we are keen to encourage as many organisations as possible to use them.
