    The ACFE Vancouver Chapter is pleased to provide the following training event.

    Several themes come to mind when we think about the 21st Century Anti-fraud professional including innovation, collaboration, communication and continuous improvement or rather, lifelong learning. These themes have been made even more relevant during COVID-19 and impacted every area of society including fraud detection, prevention and investigation as part of our new hybrid, digital world.

    Presentation Topic

    The 21st Century Fraud Fighter: Introduction to Technology Training Series  

    As technology continues to infiltrate every aspect of our life opportunities for fraud and financial crimes are growing and evolving.
