Insights: Events Profiles of the Fraudster: Technology Enables and Weak Controls Fuel the Fraud

KPMG 2016 Atlanta Perspectives Conference

"Profiles of the Fraudster: Technology Enables and Weak Controls Fuel the Fraud," KPMG 2016 Atlanta Perspectives Conference, December 2016.

Fraud is a global scourge that harms companies’ reputations, costs millions and ruins lives. It is a heavy economic and moral burden on society. KPMG has recently completed its third report, Global Profiles of the Fraudster, which presents our findings regarding the type of people who commit fraud, what sort of fraud they commit, and how they are detected. Furthermore, for the first time we look into how the fraud was perpetrated, the impact that technology has in enabling the fraudster to commit the crime, and the surprising lack of success that companies are having in deploying technology to detect the fraud. Finally, we also offer our recommendations as to how best to combat fraud.

By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify necessary internal controls and methods of effectively detecting fraud within your organization
  • Articulate the role of technology in both enabling fraud and in protecting companies from vulnerabilities
  • Qualify the broad impact fraudulent activity levies on both the economy and society
  • Identify characteristics of individuals most likely to commit fraud based on global analytics of fraudulent activity between 2013 and 2015
