News About Recent ACFE Activities

Text Box: News About Fraud Education in Saskatoon:
We were pleased to find out from one of our members (Doug Kalesnikoff) that the efforts of the ACFE (and Fraud Prevention in general) were recently highlighted in Saskatoon:


Fraud Prevention, Detection & Investigation - on Feb 23/06 the Risk Insurance Management Society (RIMS) was given a presentation that covered: What is fraud? Who commits fraud and why? Anti-fraud program controls, and the typical environment where fraud occurs.

Promoting an Ethical Environment - on Feb 20/06 fourth year commerce students at the University of Saskatchewan were treated to a discussion about: the fallout of Enron, WorldCom etc., implications of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), how to promote an ethical environment, whistleblower protection, and being an ethical person.

New University Course Concentrating on Fraud - got the inside scoop that the University of Saskatchewan is in the process of developing an undergraduate course for commerce students tentatively called “COMM 420 - Fraud Prevention, Detection and Investigation”. The first offering of the course is scheduled  for the fall of 2006. We plan to follow up this story and possibly post an outline of this course when finalized.  Stay Tuned!!!
