Looking Back, Moving Forward - Future of Fraud Examination

Tuesday 12 November 2019

Fraud examiners are experts in helping organizations prevent fraud based on identified risks and known fraud typologies. However, as technology keeps evolving and fraudsters become more innovative, fraud examiners are facing challenges with more complexities, evidence hidden with digitalized transactions as well as frequently involvement of multi jurisdictions. Can existing investigation techniques and tools still work properly in the future? Are they able to help fraud examiners to tackle future fraud schemes? It will be great if answers to both questions are positive. But if any one of them is negative, then how should fraud examiners act to respond? 

In this conference, our invited and renowned guests will share their insights and approaches to prepare fraud examiners to deal with fraud in the future.
