Forensic Techniques and Analytical Tools

Please join us on Thursday, June 27, 2013 for an informative training event. 

Eventbrite - Forensic Techniques and Analytical Tools


  • Computer environment and methods to detect fraud

    • Understanding the complexities of finding fraud in the computer environment
    • Differences between Computer Assurance and Crime Scene Investigation
    • Examination process, primarily on financial systems, in the corporate environment

  • Improving analytical skills using CaseWare’s IDEA. 

Interrogating data to gain insights into actions, good or bad, has progressed to an everyday task of a professional investigator.   By looking at events occurring in other organizations as reported in the news, this session will push the answer to the question “would your analytical skills have found that fraud if it were happening in your organization right now”.  We will focus on real life fraud experiences plus some more recent fraud cases in the news where effective analytics played an important role in cracking the case.  While CaseWare’s IDEA data analytics tool will be used for demonstration, the lessons to be learned are applicable to other tools that you may be using in your role as an investigator.

By the end of the session, participants should be able to:

    • Visualize how effective analytics can enhance other investigation skills.
    • Identify what separates purpose built tools from general tools.
    • Understand the power of effective documentation of analytical tasks.
    • Realize that access to data as a barrier is more of a myth than a fact.
    • Gain a working knowledge of the difference between ad hoc, repeatable and continuous analytics.
    • Understand the analytical life cycle: acquire and import; clean and analyze; reporting: and make future work easier with repeatable and/or continuous applications.

  • LexisNexis CaseMap fundamentals:  Maximize case knowledge and presentation

    • Utilizing tools for effectively capturing, organizing and evaluating the facts, cast of characters, relevant issues, research and players in a case. Assessing risk, evaluating strengths and weaknesses, and communicating case thinking to clients and other members of the team via quick reporting features.
  • Ethics in accordance with ACFE requirements


  • Certified Fraud Examiners and other anti-fraud specialists
  • Forensic accountants, auditors and analysts
