The six biggest words about fraud right now are cyber, cyber, cyber and technology, technology, technology.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation,
The [cyber crime] threat is incredibly serious—and growing. Cyber intrusions are becoming more commonplace, more dangerous, and more sophisticated. Our nation’s critical infrastructure, including both private and public sector networks, are targeted by adversaries. American companies are targeted for trade secrets and other sensitive corporate data, and universities for their cutting-edge research and development. Citizens are targeted by fraudsters and identity thieves, and children are targeted by online predators.
This year’s Business Fraud Update edition is another fast moving seminar that will provide a comprehensive look at the latest developments about fraud from the technical, legal, and operational perspectives and update participants on the most recent legal and regulatory developments in this important area of professional responsibility. Particular attention and focus will be directed to the latest developments related to cyber crime and the use of technology in investigations, including:
• Facial recognition technology
• Digital currencies, including loyalty programs
• Computer and digital forensics
• Data and digital analytics
The panel will include accounting and technology experts and Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) in these rapidly-evolving fields. They will explain what accountability professionals and fraud fighters need to know to remain current.
Our panel of legal experts (federal prosecutors and white-collar defense lawyers) will also weigh in on these emerging issues from their special points of view.
Participants will learn and master new skills for meeting their professional, legal and ethical responsibilities to make reasonable efforts to deter, prevent, and detect fraud.
As in previous ACPEN business fraud update courses, the materials discussed will be further illustrated using a specially designed fact pattern presented via role playing scenarios using our expert panelists to play key roles in an intriguing “who done it” format.
Business fraud happens. Cyber fraud happens. Technology is the tool to prevent or early detect threats and vulnerabilities. This program will help accountability professionals manage the risk of fraud effectively and proactively. AND, give them the tools they need to keep senior management and governance officials apprised of the importance of constant vigilance regarding fraud risks in general and cyber fraud risks in particular, and the need for proactive fraud risk management.
