Understanding the Mindset of a Fraudster

Once a fraud scandal goes public, the “what, when, where and how” become a matter of public record. But what about the “why”? What drives these individuals to lie, cheat and swindle? Understanding the path a fraudster takes from employee to criminal can provide valuable insight that can help strengthen your anti-fraud initiatives and make your fraud examinations more successful.

Take a fascinating look inside the mind of a fraudster during this 1-day ACFE course.  Through discussions of human behavior, video interviews with convicted fraudsters and interactive problem-solving, you will gain a deeper understanding of motivations and personality traits common to many fraudsters.

Controlling the Risk of Asset Misappropriation

Asset misappropriations pose a risk to all organizations. According to the ACFE's Occupational Fraud 2022, these schemes are by far the most common form of occupational fraud, occurring in approximately 86% of cases reported and resulting in a median loss of $100,000. By identifying areas of vulnerability and implementing targeted preventive and detective measures, anti-fraud professionals can reduce the potential impact of these threats on their organizations.

Learn how to stay a step ahead of the most common form of employee fraud with the ACFE's 2-day seminar, Controlling the Risk of Asset Misappropriation. This training course will help you assess your organization’s risk of asset misappropriation and will provide best practices for deterring and identifying the costly theft or misuse of company resources.
