Speaker Profile:

Peter Goldmann is founder and President of White-Collar Crime 101 LLC, the parent company of FraudAware and publisher of the monthly newsletter, White-Collar Crime Fighter. Peter has been the Publisher and Editor of White-Collar Crime Fighter for over 12 years and is recognized as a leading expert in the areas of fraud detection, prevention, investigation and training. He has written numerous articles on practical approaches to fraud prevention and detection for, among others, Internal Auditor, Investor's Business Daily, Financial Executives Institute and Bottom Line/Personal, Recognizing the vulnerability to fraud posed by a lack of awareness on the part of rank-and-file employees about specific types of economic crime , Peter launched the development of FraudAware in 2001. Following enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, FraudAware began helping companies resolve the unexpected increase in fraud losses, despite the costly implementation of SOX- mandated internal controls. He determined that while internal controls, Tone at the Top and whistleblower hotlines are all essential components of an effective anti-fraud program, the primary reason for continuing losses to internal and external economic criminals was a widespread lack of fraud awareness on the part of corporate rank-and-file employees. He theorized that if an organization's most valuable asset--its workforce--could be taught to spot and report telltale signs of fraud, investigations could be initiated and perpetrators apprehended before major losses were incurred and negative publicity tarnished the organization's reputation. The theory has proved viable over the past six years, as FraudAware training programs implemented at numerous companies in all major industries, have taught employees how to detect the common and not-so-common red flags of fraud and--most importantly--how to report these incidents through their employer's confidential hotline channels.
