Fighting Fraud: A Guide to Identifying Today’s Corporate Psychopaths
Fraud in the corporate world is more commonplace than ever, and, unfortunately with today’s technology, even the most thorough control processes can’t eliminate all the risk.

Accounting professionals are trained to identify fraud on the page, but we must go deeper to understand the human component that leads to this behavior. Fraud perpetrators, also considered “corporate psychopaths,” can use a variety of techniques to manipulate their team and company, which may not always be easy to recognize.

Jeremy Thibodeaux CPA, CFF, senior manager at Ericksen Krentel CPAs and Consultants, and Dennis Tizzard CPA, CVA, CFE, CFF, partner in charge of Ericksen Krentel’s consulting services section, will explain how to identify the red flags of fraud and how to recognize them by entity, industry and occupation to add another level of control to your fraud detection and prevention program.
