YOU NEED A FRAUD RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM; WHERE SHOULD YOU START?
Session Level: Basic
Field of Study: Management Services
Recommended Prerequisite: Knowledge or experience with fraud risk management or experience with the three lines of defense.
Did you just get the green light to formalize your fraud risk management program? Great! Now what? Are you struggling with figuring out where to start? The guidance mentions having an implementation plan, but what should be in it? Do you know how to leverage your resources to do it? How are you going to integrate it with the rest of your three lines of defense? If you’re having a tough time answering these questions, you are like so many other fraud-fighting, risk management professionals who could use help getting started. This session will give you practical tactics and strategies that will take your fraud risk management program from pitch to progress.
You Will Learn How To:
- Apply the basic principles of fraud risk and fraud risk management to develop an effective structure for your program
- Examine and leverage available resources amongst the three lines of defense to effectively prioritize program implementation
- Determine how to turn small wins into meaningful milestones, depending on where you start
Katherine Robinson has made it her professional mission to use her 15 years of experience and three professional certifications to aid and educate those with boots on the ground in the anti-fraud and risk management professions make smarter, faster and wiser choices while aiding customers and victims, educating their communities and pursuing bad actors. She primarily networks with Law Enforcement, Regulators and Banking Professionals to help them better communicate and collaborate about risk management, controls and investigation tactics. The languages they speak and objectives they have vary significantly. But they have one singular goal, and that is to see their communities prosper.
As a Forensic Accountant and Fraud Examiner for the FBI she gained insight into the challenges faced by law enforcement to navigate the banking industry when investigating financial activities. As a Banking Regulator with the State of Washington, she saw the difficulties faced by banks and regulators to enforce requirements that they had trouble understanding that better prevent and detect fraud. And as Enterprise Risk Manager and GRC Professional for banks and credit unions she witnessed first-hand how financial institutions must constantly balance stakeholder interests with the emerging threats faced by their customers. She has been able to successfully use her knowledge and experience from all three industries to advance the objectives of anti-fraud profession, and grow the knowledge, skills and abilities of fellow Forensic Accountants, Fraud Examiners and Fraud Risk Managers.
