Description

Privacy laws restrict what fraud examiners can do during fraud investigations. Fraud examiners who violate privacy laws — and their employers — may be subject to substantial monetary and legal penalties, as well as reputational harm. The risk has increased exponentially with the rise of data privacy laws, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In this course, you will learn about the types of privacy laws that apply to fraud investigations, such as data privacy laws, workplace privacy laws, confidentiality rules and legal privileges. Additionally, you will learn best practices for complying with privacy laws and how violations of privacy laws can affect a fraud investigation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Best practices for complying with privacy laws 
  • How violations of privacy laws can affect an investigation 
  • How different countries’ various privacy laws including GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) compare to each other  
  • Types of privacy-related legal risks that can arise during a fraud investigation
