    30th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference Agenda Announced

    Speakers, networking events and 100+ sessions announced.

    More than 3,000 anti-fraud professionals will gather in Austin, Texas, June 23-28, 2019, for the 30th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference to step up their fraud-fighting skills and stand out from their peers. You can now customize your schedule by choosing from more than 100 educational sessions across 14 tracks. The wide range of topics touches on nearly every facet of occupational fraud — from contract fraud to cross-border investigations to the Paradise Papers — with sessions for all levels of experience including CFE Exam Review sessions.

    Here are a few highlights:

    Mastering Emerging Fraud Detection Tools and Techniques
    Are you leveraging the tools available to detect and deter fraud in your organization? This session will explore the practical application of artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies, such as drones. It will discuss case studies where AI has been leveraged to detect fraud previously not identified.

    Leveraging Traditional and Alternative Data in Investigations
    How many times has a single email or correspondence broken your case wide open? Imagine the magnitude of evidence you could develop if that same data was analyzed on a grander scale and combined with other data sources to illuminate patterns and uncover trends. This session will explore how data mining and analytics can be beneficial to investigations.

    The Truth About the Dark Web Fraud Trade
    This session will go beyond high-level introductions to the idea of the dark web and provide you with a tactical view of what the dark web is, how it works and how fraudsters function, trade and scheme together in the criminal underground. This session connects the dots, demonstrating how compromised data and community tradecraft create the fraud lifecycle we see today.

    Unmasking the Fraudsters Targeting the Elderly
    This session will analyze the $200 million Maria Duval mail fraud as a case study for how scams targeting the elderly are perpetrated and become so difficult to stop. The presenters, both investigative journalists with CNN, will discuss ways they’ve seen scammers attempt to conceal their identities and target elderly victims, and how they were able to cut through the layers of shell companies and front people to identify the real fraudsters.

    Every Audit is a Fraud Audit
    This session will provide techniques used to brainstorm fraud schemes and assess fraud risks to ensure that fraud is included in each audit scope and testing for specific fraud schemes is part of each audit.
