Despite the chronic and compelling need for financial forensics and forensic accounting expertise, the accounting and financial professions have yet to embrace or even offer a cogent and comprehensive forensic accounting tools-based methodology. That deficiency has plagued our economy...until now.
These Forensic Accounting Webinars are the most inclusive training in forensic accounting available to date. The Webinars provide a one-stop source of tools, techniques, methods, and methodologies applicable to virtually any large or small financial matter, whether civil-, criminal-, or dispute-related.
These Webinars are designed for both financial and non-financial professionals who require sophisticated investigative and analytical skills to stay abreast of increasing civil and criminal wrongdoer duplicity. Advanced skills are essential as people and money resources diminish. Those who complete the Webinars become qualified as Forensic Operator—financial forensics-capable personnel who possess unique and specific skills, knowledge, experience, education, training, and integrity to function in the financial forensics discipline.
The Webinar content focuses on immediately usable and practical skills—not theory. Attendees will immediately deploy their skills upon return to their responsibilities. These Webinars define the financial forensics/forensic accounting profession: "The Art & Science of Investigating People & Money." The Webinars define why: "If you understand financial forensics, you understand fraud, but not vice versa," by applying financial forensics to all aspects of the financial and non-financial communities for both civil and criminal purposes.
Forensic Accounting/Investigation Methodology© (FA/IM©) is the only financial forensics/forensic accounting methodology published by the United States Department of Justice and the American Bar Association. Attendees receive preliminary access to the Academy's proprietary, contextually sensitive, Internet-based Forensic Accounting/Investigation Methodology via a Process Map (patent-in-process).
The tools, techniques, methods, and methodologies apply to all subject matters ranging from a one-chair beauty salon to a global Fortune 500 company. The tools include an introduction to (alphabetical): application of aberrant pattern detection, behavior detection, CICO©, computer forensics, CRO (and its variants), delete windows, document maps, entity(s) charts, event analysis, facial mapping, financial profiling, forensic financial analysis, forensic lexicology (quantifying words), full-and-false inclusion, funds velocity techniques, genograms, ICE/SCOR©, informant development, Internet sleuthing, invigilation, laboratory analysis, Likert scaling, link analysis/root tracing MIMO, proxemics, QDE/FAB, rules of threes, stylometry, surveillance methods, TARTA/TITA/TDTA, undercover methods, and many others. The majority of techniques have been widely applied for decades, yet are virtually unknown to the financial community.
After completing this session, attendees will be able to:
- Employ tools, hypotheses, theorems, and tests to various stages of the financial forensics engagement
- Identify technical reference sources
- Describe the techniques of behavior detection/FACS
- Describe the difference between the different types of digital analysis
- Identify your professional responsibilities regardless of financial or non-financial responsibilities
Who Should Attend
This primer is ideal for CPAs, law enforcement (federal, state, local), regulators, investigators, agents, attorneys, prosecutors, business advisors, bankers, fiduciaries, and business owners—in short, those who may not intend to focus a practice on financial forensics, yet want to understand the applicability of the discipline in their pursuits.
