Forensic accountants investigate an ever-increasing list of financial crimes that includes money laundering, Ponzi schemes, embezzlement, insurance, procurement and securities fraud. Actively sought out by the legal profession, these certified public accountants have advanced knowledge of accounting and data-analysis techniques and are often deemed part investigator, part auditor, part attorney and part accountant.
The conference will focus on accountants’ level of services, lost profit damages, a primer on preventive and detective internal controls, and best practices and challenges in forensic computing.
