Proposed Schedule (timing subject to change)

9:00 a.m.             Pandemic Frauds: What Is Ahead

The spread of COVID-19 has launched a million frauds by criminals.  Fear about the economy, obtaining basic supplies, or just paying necessary bills has made people vulnerable.  Confidence scammers are taking full advantage of this situation by using our fears to make money.  This cutting-edge program will show you what to expect from the frontline to the C-suite.  Failure to train now will cost your financial institution major dollars when people miss the tell tail signs of fraud.  Don’t discover your problems on the evening news! 

10 a.m.                 Elder Fraud: Growing Faster Than the Speed of Age

As the baby boomer generation ages, “Elder Fraud” is likely to be the biggest growing segment for crime in our country!  Criminals know who they want to target and have found ways to get close to their victims.  They know exactly how to manipulate their target and don’t care what happens to them after the scam.  After gaining control of your accountholder, the weakest link at your institution becomes the target. 

11:00 a.m.          Internal Fraud: The Warning Signs 

How prepared is your institution for internal theft and fraud? Embezzlements were the one of the most reported SAR events filed by financial institutions from 1996 to 2017. This riveting session identifies the behavioral changes that can identify internal frauds in the making!  We review the warning signs that every staff member should look for or be able to identify to help stop an internal embezzlement.  Discover where the thief will spend the stolen funds and how they keep their stealing from being found. Know whether you should do the investigation or hire a Certified Fraud Investigator. This insightful program provides you the tools needed to understand the workings of an internal fraud.

12:00 p.m.           Break for Lunch

1:00 p.m.             Preparing Your Case for Law Enforcement

Getting your case accepted by law enforcement can be the biggest stumbling block for risk management professionals.  This session will review what the victim institution should prepare prior to notifying law enforcement to accept the case for prosecution.  Best practices to prevent common mistakes are presented as well as what you can expect during the investigative and prosecution stages of your case.

2:00 p.m.             Preparation, Risk, and Critical Robbery 

It can’t happen here, it won’t happen here, it just happened here!  Robbery preparation is more than annual security training.  While staff is trained on what to do, you also need to know how to prepare in advance.  Criminals select your financial institution as a target for a variety of reasons.  While most people feel that location is the issue that is seldom the case.  In this eye-opening program you will learn what makes your office a target, the warning signs you’re being cased for robbery, and what you need to do immediately after a robbery event.  Many institutions still follow outdated procedures, opening themselves up for lawsuits from staff and the public. This program will discuss advance preparation, the actual robbery event, and what the financial institution needs to support staff after the robbery.

3:30 p.m.             Adjournment
