Overview (Program Summary)
Employee fraud can be complex to uncover with the increasing use of personal electronic devices, encrypted and ephemeral chat applications and cryptocurrency. Remote working also presents challenges to monitoring fraud risks and conducting investigations, particularly when cross-border data transfers are involved.
This seminar will explore how to mitigate employee fraud risks and handle modern fraud investigation challenges:
• Do’s and don’ts – framework for protection and mitigating employee fraud risk
• Remote work fraud risks – for remote work or relocated employees
• New cryptocurrency challenges – Where do cryptocurrency and digital asset risks arise and how do we mitigate them?
• Planning and scoping the investigation – who needs to know and when
• Practical considerations – strategies for conducting interviews, finding evidence and collecting data on personal devices
• Cross-border data transfers – new China data protection laws and their impact on employment investigations
