The New Psychology of Fraud

11:00 am–12:40 pm ET

# of CPE Credits



This session features the latest behavioral science, interactive audience experiments, and compelling real-life stories to disrupt everything you thought you knew about fraud. It will spur you to challenge “sacred cows” of the industry and help you develop better thinking approaches to detect, deter, or investigate fraud, waste and abuse. Learn why many of our basic assumptions about fraud are flawed, why some widely accepted investigative practices are more harmful than helpful, and how auditors and investigators sometimes unwittingly assist fraud schemes.


Attendees will challenge superficial assumptions regarding fraud and deception and gain a deeper understanding of effective cognitive tools to screen evidence, assess cultural influences, critically review investigative tools, and recognize the relevance of criteria


* How we unwittingly assist in the production of misleading information * The psychology of deception and self-deception * Effective evidence screening * Why we overlook obvious red flags * How our intuition and assumptions can lead us astray * Improving judgment and skepticism related to various threats

Who Should Attend
