Course Description

With the widespread distribution of COVID vaccines now promising hope for a “return to normal,” business leaders need to understand that some of the changes in the business landscape are not temporary — and these changes will have a big impact on their organizations’ fraud risk.

In a new report from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) and Grant Thornton, 51% of anti-fraud professionals surveyed said that they have uncovered higher levels of fraud since the pandemic began, with 20% saying the increase was significant.

While it would be optimistic to believe fraud levels will decrease to pre-pandemic levels as businesses and offices reopen, 71% expect the level of fraud affecting their employers to continue to increase over the next year. One reason we can likely expect more fraud to proliferate is the massive changes in underlying fraud risk factors that have arisen since the onset of the pandemic.

Our first speaker Linda Yao will dive deeper into this Information Technology CPE course the recent statistics of fraud from ACFE and its impact on corporations and society as a whole.

Today’s COVID-19 pandemic is the latest crisis creating fertile ground for fraud and scammers today have a new and powerful weapon: social media platforms. These platforms generally earn their revenue by targeting users with advertising.

The more time we spend on platforms consuming content and revealing valuable personal information, the more that platforms profit by having information to target ads. So, the algorithms tend to favor content that drives engagement, which, in turn, leads to still more information gathered to target ads and to further refine their algorithms. Identifying the difference between theft and fraud can be tricky.

Our second speaker Dave Oswald will discuss in more detail the 4 types of fraud and how organizations can be aware and on the lookout.

  • Financial Statement Fraud 
  • Cyber/Crypto Fraud
  • Corruption
  • Healthcare Fraud

About Presenter

Linda Yao

Marketing Director, World Financial Group

Linda Yao was born in Taiwan, Taipei into a family of five who lived in a one-bedroom University of Taiwan duplex with no amenities. She recalls sleeping with her grandmother and sister in a curtained-off area in the living room, while her parents and brother slept in the bedroom. The toilet was just a hole in the floor, and it was next to the kitchen. They bathed in a lean-to her dad built against the nearby banana fermentation warehouse.  

While her story started similar to many in her age group from Taiwan, Linda attributes much of her financial success to the decision to buy a few helpful wealth-building products that forced her to save monthly amounts of cash she wasn’t able to withdraw easily. 

It wasn’t always like that: Linda didn’t become interested in managing her money until she was in her 40s. Yet, she was able to reach financial independence, enjoy a very comfortable retirement, and very passionate about helping parents and grandparents to gain the confidence to manage their money, save, and pay less tax. 

She is focused on helping them in building wealth for future generations to leave a sizable

legacy effortlessly by following a few simple steps.
