The Association of Certified Fraud Examiner’s first-ever Law
Enforcement Government Anti-Fraud Summit will be November 21 in Washington,
D.C., at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.
Fraud is a costly issue in government; in the 2016 ACFE
Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse, 18.7 percent of
the reported fraud instances occurred in government entities. Although the
instances of reported fraud in the government occurred at an equal frequency
between local, state and federal government, cases that occurred on the federal
level cost a median of $194,000 each — a noticeably higher level than the
median cost of fraud at the local and state government levels ($80,000 and
Speakers will include former FBI Special Agent and
President and CEO of Coleman Worldwide Advisors, Gregory Coleman, who was
responsible for the criminal case against “Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort;
Tom Caulfield, CFE, CIG, CIGI, Co-Founder, Procurement Integrity Consulting
Services, LLC, who has more than 38 years of government service; and a number
of other financial enforcement experts.
Concurrent sessions will explore hot topics in bribery
and corruption investigations, technologies used by fraudsters to hide their
tracks and more. This summit will offer an invaluable opportunity for top
agents from government and law enforcement fields to network with their peers
and trade best practices for detecting and preventing fraud.
