The New Psychology of Fraud

This session will disrupt everything you thought you knew about fraud, including motivations, likely perpetrators, and which tools are effective for detection and deterrence.  Attendees will learn why many of our assumptions have been flawed, why some of the most trusted investigative practices actually lead us off-course, and how auditors, investigators, and others unwittingly assist fraud schemes.  The session will address topics such as behavioral profiling, psychological assessments and other commonly used industry tools.  Scientific research is combined with Toby’s first-hand accounts in this powerful talk that exposes myths and the dangers lurking in our assumptions related to this ever-growing threat.

Major Subjects:

  • 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

Learning objectives:  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.
