Dinner Meeting Topic:
Real-World Fraud Investigations, Litigation & Regulatory Response: Leveraging people, process & technology to increase efficiencies & reduce risk
||When conducting internal investigations related to fraud, misappropriation of assets or potential corruption, or responding to a litigation event, complying with a regulatory request by the DOJ, SEC or independent compliance monitor under tight deadlines, your team needs to quickly, efficiently and effectively preserve, collect, process, host and review electronically stored information (ESI). Even if your organization has mature Information Governance, Investigations, Forensic Data Analytics and eDiscovery policies and procedures in place, without properly trained staff that follow the right processes and procedures, and know how to use technology to sift through vast amounts of data to separate the wheat from the chaff, it can be difficult for your organization to respond adequately. However, by implementing top down change, maturing your processes holistically, and providing the right guidance for your employees, it is possible to leverage people, process and technology to increase efficiencies and reduce risk. During this presentation we will examine the common threads between Fraud Investigations, Litigation and Regulatory Response through real-world examples as well as methods that can be used to increase the accuracy and productivity of your team while mitigating risk for the organization as a whole.
After completing this session participants will be able to:
- Understand the process commonalities between Fraud Investigations, Litigation and Regulatory Response and their dependence on the ability to efficiently and effectively preserve, collect, process, host and review electronically stored information.
- Understand the ability to collect and use data, both structured (e.g., general ledger or transaction data) and unstructured (e.g., email, voice or free-text fields in a database), to prevent, detect, monitor or investigate potentially improper transactions, events or patterns of behavior related to misconduct, fraud and noncompliance issues.
- Understand how proper Information Governance can facilitate efficiencies and risk mitigation for Legal, IT Security, Audit and Compliance functions.
