The newsletter is in its 15th year of publication under Peter’s leadership.
Peter is the author of Fraud in the Markets: Why it Happens and How to Fight It, published by John Wiley & Sons, as well as four other anti-fraud books.
Peter also developed FraudAware, the leading fraud awareness training program. A user-friendly learning tool, FraudAware uses seminar, Webinar and E-Learning formats to train employees and managers at all levels in how to detect, prevent and report incidents of fraud or suspicious conduct.
FraudAware courses, which are customized for individual corporate, non-profit and government agency clients, reinforces organizations’ whistleblowing programs by enabling employees to detect fraudulent activity that can then be reported to supervisors or managers or by using the organization’s confidential hotline in accordance with established policy.
In addition, Peter has conducted numerous on-site fraud detection and prevention workshops for internal auditors, attorneys, HR executives and compliance officers at Fortune 500 companies and large not-for-profit organizations. He has also been a guest lecturer for college accounting and auditing courses.
He is also the developer of a series of fraud detection and prevention Webinars co-presented with AuditNet.org. These Webinars cover auditing for accounts payable fraud, auditors’ responsibility for detecting and preventing fraud, auditing for financial statement fraud, and others. They are a key part of the substantial body of “how-to” anti-fraud content in FraudResourceNet, the portal he co-founded with AuditNet.
Peter also is co-founder of FraudResourceNet, the only central online portal for anti-fraud tools, techniques and expert advice, serving anti-fraud professionals worldwide.
Peter has 25 years of experience as a business journalist and trainer, having launched, edited and published numerous business trade Periodicals covering small business, international trade, management strategy, banking and personal finance. He is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and a member of the Editorial Advisory Committee of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) as well as an active member of the International Association of Financial Crime Investigators and the IOFM Controller Certification Advisory Board.
He has been a columnist for the ACFE’s newsletter, The Fraud Examiner and is a frequent contributor to other leading industry publications on anti-fraud topics. He has appeared on Fox Business News, The Wall Street Journal This Morning, The New York Times and Internal Auditor magazine.
Peter holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and a Master’s from the London School of Economics.
Unfortunately, employees continue to commit crimes such as embezzlement, check fraud, falsification of financial statements, collusion with corrupt vendors, and, as recently highlighted by the FBI, “business email compromise” schemes. Making matters worse, computer and Internet technology has given dishonest workers new ways to steal money, sensitive information and even hard assets from credit unions. The result is that employee fraud is on the rise. The good news is that there are ways to both detect and protect against most forms of employee fraud and misconduct.
This session with expert speaker Peter Goldmann, CFE, CFCI, will discuss how you can identify potential fraud perpetrators in your organization, detect signs of specific schemes against organizations in your industry, and create and enforce robust controls that will eliminate opportunities for fraud. In this session, Peter will also present case studies to illustrate the principles of fraud detection and prevention.
