Psychology of Fraud Workshop –Toby Groves

This workshop delves into the very latest research, busting myths and moving beyond outdated models to a deeper understanding and recognition of behaviors surrounding fraud. Attendees will take a deep look at individual thinking and group DNA, including the fascinating science behind how beliefs spread.  Learn why auditors sometimes misinterpret obvious clues, or even unintentionally support deceptive schemes.  This is a highly interactive, story based session that will unveil never heard before details and enhance attendees understanding of human behavior related to deception and fraud.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and understand concepts of critical thinking and apply them to professional judgment in auditing, accounting and governance situations.
  • Common symptoms / characteristics of fraud
  • Accountability for managers, finance, and audit professionals

No prerequisites required. 8 CPE offered.

Forensic Analytics and Employee Fraud – Mark Nigrini, PhD

This workshop is an opportunity to learn about Benford’s Law and other analytic techniques to detect and prevent employee and supplier misconduct using case studies and discussions. The workshop will include case studies related to using Benford’s Law, case studies related to analytics assignments undertaken by the instructor, case studies related to fraud cases studied by the instructor, and case studies published by the instructor.

The workshop will be valuable for internal auditors, fraud examiners, and investigators with a general day-to-day familiarity with obtaining and importing transactional data, and who would like to explore and exploit the potential of forensic analytics. The workshop would also be valuable to other accountants and investigators who are thinking of moving into the forensic and data interrogation field.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize that fraud numbers are mixed together with valid and authentic numbers
  • Understand that fraudsters have a digital fingerprint that makes their numbers different from valid and authentic numbers
  • Design and select computer-assisted audit analytics to identify fraud and bribes, or to confirm the behavioral responses (people gaming the system) that are a result of fraud or other incentives.
  • Developing the ability to find FCPA violations in payments data.

No prerequisites required. 8 CPE offered.
