The ACFE returns to Canada for the 18th year
The 2012 ACFE Canadian Fraud Conference, held Oct. 28-31 in Ottawa, offers anti-fraud professionals the unmatched opportunity to share insights, network with industry leaders and discuss the latest trends specific to Canada. Pamela Meyer, CFE, author of Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception, brings her top-rated presentation from the 23rd Annual ACFE Fraud Conference. Additional keynote sessions by James D. Ratley, CFE, ACFE President and CEO; John Sliter, Director of Fields Services for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s Canadian Police Information Centre; and convicted fraudster Justin Paperny will offer invaluable insight into efficiently uncovering the truth in fraud investigations.
Second Asia-Pacific conference supports growth in the region

This year, we hope to reach new heights when we meet in Hong Kong, Nov. 4-6, 2012, to discuss the latest fraud-fighting trends specific to the Asia-Pacific region during interactive sessions, educational workshops and an informative panel discussion. Keynote speakers include the Hong Kong Institute for Monetary Research’s Leo Goodstadt, and Kevin Zervos, Director of Public Prosecutions for the Hong Kong Department of Justice.
