Hot IT Issues Every CPA Should Know About

Hardware, software and the way we use them is in a state of constant transformation. Keeping data secure is a perpetual battle. This program will look at what you must consider as you make decisions on the future of your technology. Les Nettleton will look at Cybersecurity, Blockchain, software and software licensing, cloud computing, working remotely, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and the risks associated with mobile devices.

The Fraud Triangle and Common Rationalizations for Occupational Fraud
David Yellott, CPA, CGMA • East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office • Baton Rouge, LA

In this session we will look at the fraud triangle, how incentives and pressures lead good people down bad roads, and how everyone has a rationalization for why they do what they do. We will also examine the psychology of fraud by looking at classic rationalizations for fraud and how organizations can protect themselves from potential fraudsters.
