Along with money in your bank account, information has become one of the most sought after assets by fraudsters. Employees and outsiders both target valuable information like source code, clients lists and personally identifiable information in an effort to gain competitive advantages or steal valuable information. Using a variety of case studies, this session will examine how fraud examiners can investigate these threats using technology-based methods.

Given the current trends around big data the convergence of both structured (financial) and unstructured (text, social media, email, etc.) data has profoundly changed the way companies think about fraud and monitoring for fraud risks - especially in the context of bribery and corruption given the current FCPA regulatory environment. In fact, the ACFE Report to the Nations shows that 33% of the incidents reported globally were corruption related. The key is that new tools need to be implemented to address these risks! In this four hour session you will learn leading ways companies are integrating advanced forensic data analytics ("FDA") to detect rogue employee activities.

Of the three elements in the interview process – questioning, detecting deception and persuasion – the last proves to be the most challenging and problematic. This session will use videos and transcripts to illustrate which communication dynamics must occur to influence the behavior of another person and how those dynamics are incorporated into the interview process. The session will also provide an in-depth breakdown of the analysis, related knowledge assessments, various correlated practical exercises and application questions. Discover how to take the guess work out of your fraud examination interviews in this pre-conference session led by top-rated ACFE faculty member Don Rabon, CFE.
