Overview

Fraud has become a way of life in our society. It is as commonplace as sand on a beach.  We often hear the experts say “it’s not a matter of “if,” but “when.”  We can all be a victim of fraud…at your company, identity theft or cyber fraud.  This session will focus on how a fraud can occur, why it occurs and the best practices to prevent it from happening in your company or personally.

Marcum LLP is proud to offer the Education with a Bite Series as a free event and all attendees will receive CPE and CE credits.
