Fraudsters love chaos because it provides opportunity. The situation with COVID has upended normal processes and activities leaving everyone, business and individuals, more susceptible to fraud. The ACFE recently reported research has found more that more than 4,000 coronavirus related domains have been registered since January 2020. It is expected many of these will be used in phishing schemes. Changes in organizational processes and professional interactions will create opportunity for fraud. This course will examine the most likely and anticipated fraud schemes to occur as a result of COVID and how to prevent and detect new and emerging fraud and fraud risk. It will look at the changes in pressure and opportunity for fraud as related to the significant changes being experienced and what organizations should be doing to prepare and deal with increased fraud risk.
