Duration: 100 Minutes
CPE Credits: 2

This webinar will teach you how to prepare for forensic interviews, the vital role of interviewing in forensic investigations and the importance of not letting financial analysis drive the engagement.

When planning an interview, you should ask yourself if this is known or suspected fraud, and who should be interviewed first. From there, you can identify the purpose of each interview, assess interviewing techniques, and understand verbal and nonverbal signs in interviews.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Prepare for a forensic interview
  • Develop a sample of case-based questions to ask
  • Determine who to interview (both internal and external parties)
  • Assess interviewing techniques incorporating verbal and nonverbal clues
