Course Description

The webcast is timely, as Digital Frauds involving cryptocurrencies is trending up dramatically. The amount stolen from digital currency exchanges in the first half of 2018 was nearly three times more than in all of last year according to a new report by CipherTrace, a blockchain security firm. Sophisticated criminals in the United States and around the world are increasingly using cryptocurrencies in fraud and money laundering operations. Money laundering involving cryptocurrencies – a medium of exchange circulated over a computer network and generally not backed by a government – is a new twist on an old crime. This particular type of crime has broad implications for businesses, financial institutions and the accounting profession.

As cyber-crime continues to expand, CPAs and Forensic Accountants need to gain knowledge of the current trends facing the public. This webcast analyzes how cryptocurrencies are used to perpetrate cyber-fraud and traditional fraud schemes. As trusted advisors, CPAs can assist in providing effective measures to avoid cryptocurrency scams. This webinar will explore real-life examples of fraud cases involving virtual currencies. 

THIS WEBINAR IS RECOMMENDED FOR CPAs IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PRACTICE, FORENSIC ACCOUNTANTS, CFOs AND CONTROLLERS, INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL AUDITORS, LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL CONDUCTING CYBER-CRIME INVESTIGATIONS.
