Unfortunately, employees continue to commit crimes such as embezzlement, check fraud, falsification of financial statements, collusion with corrupt vendors, and, as recently highlighted by the FBI, "business email compromise" schemes. Making matters worse, computer and Internet technology has given dishonest workers new ways to steal money, sensitive information and even hard assets from credit unions. The result is that employee fraud is on the rise. The good news is that there are ways to both detect and protect against most forms of employee fraud and misconduct.
This session with expert speaker Peter Goldmann, CFE, CFCI, will discuss how you can identify potential fraud perpetrators in your organization, detect signs of specific schemes against organizations in your industry, and create and enforce robust controls that will eliminate opportunities for fraud. In this session, Peter will also present case studies to illustrate the principles of fraud detection and prevention.
