NATIONAL ACFE EVENT IN CLEVELAND: CYBERFRAUD AND DATA BREACHES

CPE Credit: 16
Cleveland, OH | May 4-5, 2020
Course Level: Overview
Prerequisite: None

Losing data to fraud can be more costly than the loss of cash and other assets. To ensure data security, safeguard intellectual property and guard against cyberfraud, fraud examiners must stay informed of rapidly advancing technologies, emerging business trends and the methods employed by increasingly sophisticated information thieves.

This 2-day, instructor-led course will clarify these issues while guiding you through the crucial strategies needed to mitigate the threat of malicious data theft and minimize the risk of inadvertent data loss. You will also learn useful steps for the creation of data security policies and related internal controls.
