E171v : Digital Fraud

7.00 CPE Hours (Category 2Category 5)
Live Webinar

Programme Objective
 
Research around the world has shown that digital fraud is a problem that businesses have long been facing since the advent of e-commerce in the 1990s. In fact, Experian found that losses from fraudulent identities increased from 51% in 2017 to 57% in 2019. According to PwC, these crimes cost companies $42 billion in the last 24 months. 

But as digital fraud rises year over year, many organisations are still left behind in preventing and detecting these types of fraud. We want to address this global phenomenon through this course by equipping accountants and auditors with knowledge to partner with their technology and legal counterparts. 

Course attendees will be able to understand computer fraud; appreciate the impact of emerging technologies on fraud; discuss how computers are used in occupational fraud through data manipulation and destruction, unauthorized access, software piracy, theft of trade secrets, internet and e-commerce fraud; and leverage these insights in computer and internet fraud investigations and digital forensics.
