The Wehle School of Business presents a faculty colloquium entitled “Fraud Response & Litigation-readiness Strategies For Small and Medium Businesses” by Patricia Johnson, CPA, CFE; Linda Volonino, PhD, CISSP; and Ian Redpath, JD, LLM on Friday, March 23 from 1 – 3 p.m. in Old Main 315. All faculty, staff and students are invited.
The colloquium will present information based on a handbook publication entitled “How to Prepare for Litigation, Prosecution & Loss Recovery in Response to Insider Fraud.” While much has been written about how to detect and prevent insider fraud, little has been written on what to do once fraud is realized. Mistakes may make it impossible to recover losses, punish the fraudster, or defend against charges filed by the fraudster. Knowing what to do and not to do, the basics of fraud investigation, rules of evidence and legal procedures make dealing with fraud and the perpetrators more effective.
