Upcoming Training Opportunity

The Kansas City ACFE Chapter is presenting a Live half-day workshop, for which 4 CPE credits will be issued.   

Note:  You must register and pay via KC Chapters website by the deadline, Thursday, October 22, 2020, 11:59am.   

Event Date:  Tuesday, October 27th, 2020 
8:00 am – 12:00 pm CST

Speaker James Ruotolo will present A New Fraud RIsk Plan for a New Normal for this half-day event: 

The pandemic has changed the fraud threat landscape. Organizations need to adapt their fraud risk mitigation programs to adjust to the new landscape. An effective anti-fraud program begins with proactive steps like establishing a solid anti-fraud governance structure and conducting a thorough fraud risk assessment. But it also needs to include reactive components that respond to cyber threats and execute timely investigations when controls fail. This session will cover the proactive and reactive steps organizations need to take to be better prepared for a new fraud landscape.

The course will be a combination of lecture, exercise and an examination of both well-known fraud cases and the instructor’s personal fraud cases.

  • Be familiar with the Anti-Fraud Playbook and how to apply leading guidance for fraud risk management programs
  • Know the steps of how to conduct a thorough fraud risk assessment
  • Be able to “think like a fraudster” to identify new and emerging fraud threats
  • Understand the value of cyber threat intelligence and how to leverage it within an anti-fraud program
  • Be prepared to manage effective investigations when suspected fraud events occur
