Forensic accountancy can only be successful if every step in the investigative process is given sufficient priority. That said, it could be argued that nothing matters more than of an effective forensic data collection process. Regardless of the nature or extent of the financial crime, the outcome will be determined by what takes place during this crucial stage. Forensic accountants must have comprehensive knowledge of evidence gathering techniques, along with the confidence to put them into practice. The investigator needs to know where, when and how to both search for and gather evidence, following the detection of suspected fraud. Unless the right evidence is collected and presented in a timely manner, the rest of the fraud prevention process is rendered redundant.
This CPE course is designed for individuals who would like to obtain a basic understanding of the proper methods and procedures for gathering and maintaining evidence in a forensic accounting engagement. In this online CPE webinar, you will learn how to approach the forensic data collection process strategically and effectively.
The speaker, Dr. Robert Minniti, CPA will also discuss the Federal Rules of Evidence and the need for the documentation of the chain of custody. You will learn to differentiate between evidence used in civil cases and evidence used in criminal cases.
