In today’s current climate, where there is pressure to reduce and justify public spending, the financial and reputational impact of any fraud affecting government agencies is especially heightened. Moreover, the types of fraud schemes in the public sector are varied and perpetrators can come from any level of the organization. Because governance, risk and compliance professionals working in government agencies are faced with overwhelming amounts of data stemming from complex systems and millions of transactions, it can be especially challenging to identify fraud risks and control failures in a timely manner.
In this 60-minute webinar, guest speakers Dave Coderre, ACDA, President of CAATS, and Charles Segal, MBA ITIL, President of River Analytic Consulting, will discuss how you can actually identify and assess fraud risk and control weaknesses using data analysis techniques. They will also share examples from 30+ years working with government agencies and provide you with ideas for fraud analysis that you will want to (and can!) get started with right away.
This webinar will also cover the following key topics:
