Fraud Autopsies - Inside Real-Life Fraud Cases

As a certified fraud examiner and Partner with Skoda Minotti, Frank Suponcic has worked over 100 forensic cases over his 25 year career in the area of litigation support. Over that time and during his investigations, he has encountered and seen a lot. Nothing is more entertaining than listening to, and learning from, Frank’s first-hand and real life investigations.

On February 28, Frank will be taking us inside a small handful of classic real life forensic cases. From how the initial fraud was detected, to compiling the case and establishing how “good” individuals took liberties with company cash through the respective case’s conclusion, Frank will walk us through the three different cases while at the same time pointing out pitfalls to avoid and suggesting fraud prevention recommendations to consider in an effort to minimize the likelihood of becoming a fraud victim.

Never at a loss for entertaining case stories, Frank has plenty of material to quench the thirstiest of fraud appetites.

Developing Your Business Through Internal Controls

Internal controls are mandated for public companies, but companies of all sizes can benefit from strong internal controls and process documentation. This presentation will describe what internal controls mean to small businesses and private companies. We will discuss the approach for documenting processes, identifying where the weaknesses are within a company and how to mitigate those risks by developing simple controls.
