We have all heard the statement that it is the people that work at a company that gives it value. It is, sometimes and unfortunately, also the people that provide fraudsters with an entry point into an organization that can lead to hardship. This is even more true now because cyber-attacks on both organization and individuals have increased notably. Many highly publicized corporate hacking events are successful, at least in part, because an individual was targeted. In this session, we look the types of fraud that take aim at individuals with a special focus on the growth of cyber-attacks. We then discuss measures that can be put forth to help employees protect both themselves and the organization.
Once participants have completed this session, they should be able to:
List fraud methods that affect individuals;
Identify how the connection between an employee and an employer can be exploited, and
List ways to reduce this type of fraud risk.
The topics discussed in this session include:
Types of fraud that targets individuals.
How organizations can work to reduce risk for workers.
