Expanding Fraud Risk Awareness: Rationalization and Dark Triad


Whether an auditor or fraud risk specialist, understanding the Fraud Triangle is crucial. The ability to “think like a fraudster” gives fraud examiners an edge in their investigations and can mean the difference between success and failure. In this webinar, we will discuss the differences between predatory and situational-type fraudsters, and how rationalization applies to both types.


Familiarity with the Fraud Triangle (pressure, opportunity, rationalization). 

You Will Learn How To:

Identify differences between predatory and situational-type fraudsters .

Determine how the rationalization element of the Fraud Triangle applies differently to various types of fraudsters .

Recognize strategies that are specific to each type of fraudster .
