Description of Fraud Training Event:

Presented by Dr. J. Michael Skiba 

Session 1 - Corporate and Occupational Fraud

Corporate and occupational fraud is predicted to become one of the largest threats to companies and agencies in the upcoming year. Facing this internal threat requires a unique approach to counter-fraud, an approach that must be unique to that particular institution. In this very interactive session, learn specifics on schemes, detection methods, and strategies that can be taken away for immediate application. Furthermore, delve into the mind of the corporate fraudster and how their unique make-up requires equally unique tactics.

Session 2: Psychology of Fraud

This session is founded on the presenters newly released book entitled, “The Psychology of Fraud”. This session will explore what motivates people (how honest are you??) as this is the basis for psychological and criminological research. Furthermore, attendees will gain an understanding of criminological theory and why fraudsters commit crime. These theories will be explored and applied in a fraud context which will assist with developing highly effective counter fraud strategies. Preventative efforts based on these theories will also be explored. Attend if you dare to get into the mind of a fraudster.

Session 3 - How to Hack a Human

Why are all Humans Vulnerable? The research indicates that 98% of all cyberattacks occur as a result of social engineering tactics. This implies that humans (employees) are the weakest link in an organizations system, which leaves the door open to cybercriminals. In this session, attendees will learn the psychological tricks and tactics that criminals use to manipulate employees into gaining access into internal systems. Understanding these persuasive tactics will help organizations develop stronger, more focused cyber strategies. In this informative session, Dr. Fraud will explore all of these significant topics and engulf the audience in how to hack a human.
