    This session is a repeat of the sold-out session at the 29th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference in Las Vegas. You are encouraged to attend if you missed last year's session, or need a refresher. It will explore the challenges CFEs face when conducting investigations that involve adolescents, teens and millennials as the victims, suspects or witnesses. You will learn about their unique communication methods, both verbal and digital, and see how their use of technology changes their perception of time and space, and their default sense of self.

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Navigate the challenges of investigations involving millennials
    • Examine the platforms that millennials use to communicate
    • Distinguish between digital immigrants and digital natives
    • Recognize the common types of exploitation and harassment that adolescents and millennials face in their digitally connected world
