The list of contributors to the Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime (Cambridge, UK, 2nd to 9th September 2012) is a rollcall of world leaders in law enforcement; names such as Cyrus Vance, Ros Wright, Masayuki Yoshida, Professor Fletcher Baldwin … the list is endless. There are several Gower authors contributing too: Professor Mike Levi, Dr Shima Keene and Mark Johnson. This is a heavy-weight event that runs over a week and tackles all of the hot-button issues: money laundering, state and corporate corruption, compliance, technology, identity and privacy. Mike Levi is contributor to Fraud: the Counter Fraud Practitioner’s Handbook; Shima Keene is author of Threat Finance: Disconnecting the Lifeline of Organised Crime and Terrorism and Mark Johnson is author of the forthcoming titles: Demystifying Communications Risk: A Guide to Revenue Risk Management in the Communications Sector and Cyber Crime, Security and Digital Intelligence: Vulnerabilities, Risks, Threat Actors and Controls in the Information Age.
Sadly not a school for producing lots of little Terry Thomas look alikes (for those with fond memories of classic British cinema) but, actually from a business perspective, something even better; an intense two-day training and development event facilitated by three of today’s most able and most experienced anti-fraud specialists: Alan McDonagh, Nigel Iyer and Veronica Morino, between them responsible for a great collection of practical fraud books: Fraud and Corruption, A Short Guide to Fraud Risk, and The Anatomy of Fraud and Corruption.
I am hoping that the 2012 Institute of Counter Fraud Studies Conference in June will provide me with some new insights into tackling fraud. There are some great topics on the agenda, including Fraud and Football Clubs, Fraud and Corruption in the Military, as well as fraud and error in government. Shining a light on these areas is an extraordinarily simple, but effective strategy for discouraging fraudsters; the one thing they don’t seek is the limelight! If you decide to come along to the conference then you’ll have the chance to browse all of our fraud and corruption titles and to win a copy of Alan Doig’s brand new book Fraud: The Counter Fraud Practitioner’s Handbook.
Ian will be presenting at the event in the Business Strategy Theatre at 12pm on Thursday 26th April with the headline of Social Engineering IX – Hacking the Globe – a snappy little title, that sets the theme for an examination of cultural differences that impact on the task of the social engineer. This is the result of his social engineering work across a number of continents.
Do pop in and see Ian on the ECSC stand at any time during the three days - he will be doing regular short presentations each day. ECSC are vendor independent information security specialists offering expert guidance, support and management services.
Ian’s book, Hacking the Human is available from Gower Publishing.
Richard Minogue (The Anatomy of Fraud and Corruption and, forthcoming, Bad Governance and Good Intent) poses a very interesting conundrum on his blog. He argues that despite paying lip service to governance, companies condone sharp practice and, worse still, some companies even mark down employees who put ethics above short-term gain.
