Preparing for a Post COVID Fraud Landscape
Presented by Linda Miller, Grant Thornton, and Dave Cappellina, Grant Thornton
The Covid-19 pandemic has prompted a wave of new fraud schemes and radically changed the way people work and transact. Organizations adapted their fraud risk management programs to respond. With vaccine rollouts progressing across the globe, those same organizations are now preparing for a world after COVID. What do they anticipate? How are fraud trends expected to shift? How will organizations modify their anti-fraud programs to tackle future fraud threats? Grant Thornton and ACFE collaborated on new research to answer these questions. This session will describe the results of a new benchmarking survey that explores how organizations are preparing for a post-COVID fraud landscape.
