Virtual Event: Fraud and Cybercrime

Best Practices to Bolster Your Fraud Intelligence Program to Prevent Corruption and Online Threats

Thursday, April 29, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Fraud is not only growing but evolving, becoming more sophisticated with technological advancements; now more than ever, it’s imperative to shift the focus from detection to prevention. Game-changing advances in technology now give the public sector the ability to monitor and detect issues before threats become a reality. Increasingly, organizations are taking a proactive approach to managing these risks, implementing countermeasures and adopting strict protocols to prevent fraud, corruption, cybercrime – and mitigate their consequences. 

In addition to these forces, administrative departments are also grappling with insider threats, which can be especially damaging for government institutions as it leads to diminished public confidence and trust. Finally, today’s work from home environment means that phishing attempts are on the rise and networks are being exploited more than ever before. 

PSN’s virtual Fraud and Cybercrime event will showcase leading ways to assess your organization’s fraud and cyber risk management practices. Gain insight into the training, processes, and technology that will keep your organization steps ahead of cybercriminals. This event will strengthen your cyber fraud defenses and digital fraud prevention, help you find the right innovative tools to enhance digital ID verification and authentication, and unlock technological solutions that provide greater public trust, security, and assurance.
