Think: Think Like a Fraudster

Description: 
Understanding the types of fraud that your organization is vulnerable to is imperative to developing the right antifraud activities. To gain this understanding, you have to identify fraud schemes, which will involve putting on your ‘fraudster’ cap and walking through possible fraud types (internal and external), fraud risk entry points, and actors to identify vulnerabilities for fraud within individual departments, business processes or areas, and even enterprise-wide. This process will lead to comprehensive Fraud Risk Map for your organization, which is a resource you will be able to employ across your fraud risk management activities.
“Thinking like a fraudster” and coming up with the fraud schemes that could be used to commit fraud at your organization is a vital step in an effective fraud risk management effort, and this session will focus on providing the stepping stones for you to begin to become an expert in “Thinking like a fraudster” and developing a Fraud Risk Map for your organization.
