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.

Learned details about the cryptocurrency market that I was unaware of previously. This class helped to ensure that if I decide to trade in cryptos, I will definitely be safer about it, especially regarding the safe keeping of the key, the wallet I choose and I will also make sure the currency is registered.
