    Conducting Internal Investigations

    CPE Credits: 16

    Austin, TX | May 3-4, 2018

    Conducting an internal investigation can be a difficult task. An investigation into employee wrongdoing can be costly, disruptive and time-consuming, and can also lead to a variety of legal problems and other unexpected complications if it is not conducted with the utmost care and confidentiality. However, a well-run internal investigation can enhance a company’s overall well-being and can help detect the source of lost funds, identify responsible parties and recover losses. It can also provide a defense to legal charges by terminated or disgruntled employees. But perhaps most important, an internal investigation will signal to other employees that the company will not tolerate fraud.

    Conducting Internal Investigations will prepare you for every step of an internal investigation into potential fraud, from receiving the initial allegation to testifying as a witness. In this course, you will learn how to lead an internal investigation with accuracy and confidence by gaining knowledge about various topics, such as relevant legal aspects of internal investigations, using computers in an investigation, collecting and analyzing internal and external information, interviewing witnesses and writing reports.

    This instructor-led course includes a relevant practical problem, which you will work through from beginning to end. This will provide practical experience that you will be able to apply in your own work.

    Session 4: Modern Cybersecurity, from Account Hijacking to Zero Days
    By Monty St John

    As cybersecurity has grown so too has the language to describe it. Knowing brings you closer to the heart of culture than its language. Cybersecurity, or information security if you prefer, is a subculture, with its own language, customs and habits. Understanding that language, makes helps in discerning the impact of the news that streams in front of our eyes on a daily basis. Its one breach or another, followed by a flash of some malware or new attack. Knowing what's being communicated means you can apply it in your life and in your work.

    Students will both learn the language of cybersecurity, a sometimes confusing and daunting process, while being introduced to some of the more important and impacting modern events.
