Course Description
Do you have evil people working within your organization? No? That's good... but evil people really aren't the ones committing internal fraud anyway. This presentation will introduce you to the various types of internal fraud that are currently occurring in our industry along with information regarding the "who", the "how", and the "why" enployees are doing this. This presentation will re-direct your thought process about who these people really are, and will assist in your awareness of what to look for and how to design prevention methods to address these "new age" criminals. It really isn't who you think it is, and it really isn't what you think they are doing!
