Come join us for our next networking and training opportunity on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, at The Radisson Hotel Roseville.  We're looking forward to exciting presentations from Guy Berg with the Federal Reserve Bank and Ben Cohen with Control Risks.  Attendees of this quarterly training session will receive three hours of fraud related, non-NASBA CPE and MN POST credits, and it also includes a full breakfast buffet.


Guy Berg has over 20 years of global experience in the payments industry working on new technology adoption for fraud mitigation and payment security including contact and contactless chip technology (EMV) and mobile payments.  He is currently the Vice President of the Payments, Standards, and Outreach Group at Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and leads FRB Minneapolis initiatives supporting improvements in the U.S. payment systems including B2B payment efficiency, payment security, and standards development and adoption.  His group also performs payment fraud mitigation and emerging payment technology research including Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology.

Session 1: Technology Advancement and Payment Security – Who has the advantage?

In this presentation, Guy Berg will talk about technology advancements and how they impact payment security and fraud risk.  Since the early to mid-nineties, the pace of technical innovations has increased dramatically fueled by the Internet, ever smaller and more powerful computers, smarter mobile phones and the convergence of these technologies.  Technical innovations enable both better defenses and attacks that are more sophisticated.  Which side will better leverage technical innovations?   What are the primary forces at play influencing the arms race between fraud perpetrators and payments system defenses?

Ben Cohen is a Principal within Control Risks’ Compliance, Forensics and Intelligence practice in the Americas region. A certified public accountant (CPA), certified fraud examiner (CFE) and certified in financial forensics (CFF), Ben has significant experience in corporate compliance, forensic accounting, fraud and anti-corruption matters to help his clients manage regulatory risk.

He has assisted companies with the development of best-practice anti-corruption and anti-fraud compliance programs, including implementation of effective internal controls and risk-based third party due diligence systems. Ben has led engagements throughout the U.S., Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Session 2: Tips and Tools to Mitigate Insider Fraud Threats

The largest fraud threat to companies comes from within an organization by its own employees. This session will discuss techniques to mitigate insider threats of fraud through lessons learned and case studies. Topics will include how to spot a fraudster in your midst, how to use data analytics and ongoing monitoring to uncover troubling trends, ferreting out conflicts of interest and designing meaningful controls to manage fraud risk. Based on experience from the reactive side of conducting global fraud, corruption and forensic accounting investigations, the presentation will cover what you can do proactively to prevent the fraud from occurring in the first instance.

Registration cutoff for this meeting is 11:59:59pm on 11/09/18 and early registration expires at 11:59:59pm on 11/02/18.  The Board of Directors will hold their quarterly meeting immediately following the conclusion of the training session at 11:00am.
