The current global outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has led to a “perfect storm” for fraud. Fraud controls at all levels (government, law enforcement, regulatory, private sector) have ground to a halt as governments and companies reduce operations to essential personnel. Worldwide data security has stalled as companies organizations shift their focus to responding to the virus. Millions of people are stuck at home, eager for the latest news on the spread of the virus, making it more likely for normally “careful” consumers to fall victim to phishing and other attacks. This webinar will walk you through a variety of real-life fraud schemes being perpetrated as part of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.You Will Learn How To:
- Recall the reasons why consumers and businesses are more susceptible to fraud during natural disasters.
- Identify specific schemes related to the COVID-19 outbreak
- Apply tips to protect yourself and loved ones from disaster fraud
