Securities fraud always seems to be in the news, with some of the biggest – such as Enron, WorldCom and Madoff – becoming household names. This webinar CD-ROM will provide you with fundamental principles related to the detection and prevention of securities fraud.

The course will focus on developing a blueprint for a well-planned and strategic investigation, and will offer guidance on creating an expert’s report or trial testimony. It will also cover the four major categories of securities fraud and how to identify the red flags of securities fraud. The “protective silos” of securities fraud and resources to help you break through these barriers will also be discussed.
