The 2013 ACFE European Fraud Conference takes place in Prague on 17-19 March
The ACFE programme will feature speakers from government entities and the private industry with a wide variety of expertise in international fraud prevention, deterrence and detection. These experienced practitioners will lead you through interactive sessions while sharing real-world examples and strategies that can immediately take your fraud investigations to the next level.
Topics to be discussed include:
- Making the Most of Sanctions and Watch Lists – Various sanctions, terrorist and serious crime watch lists are available to anti-fraud professionals and can be utilised for anti-fraud purposes.

- Online Investigations – As the use of the Internet and mobile technologies, including smartphones, has grown rapidly in recent years so has the opportunity for computer-related crime. Unlawful activity can be committed or facilitated online with criminals trading and sharing information, masking their identity, gathering information on victims and communicating with co-conspirators. Websites, email, chat rooms and social networks can all provide vital evidence in an investigation of computer-related crime, and this session will assist investigators in their efforts to curb such crime.
