What is Lurking in the Dark Web? - Presented by Dr. Babur Kohy (CyTalks)
Over 90% of internet content is hidden. Activists, hacktivists, nation states, researchers, and those who seek anonymity utilize the deep dark web. Being that 90% of the internet remains hidden, it is important for students and professionals to understand how to navigate the dark corners of the web. This conversation will focus on the dark net from gateways perspective. Participants will have a chance to interact with various dark web gateways; personal laptops with virtual machine is required for the hands-on activities. Concepts learned from this workshop can be tailored for specific use cases based upon scenarios and work mission requirements.
Detection of Fraud Schemes - Presented by David Hilton (KPMG)
In this session, attendees will examine a number of fraud models with an emphasis on fraud detection and the red flags that may be observable. It will use various case studies to illustrate fraud schemes and human behavior. This session is relevant to all professionals with responsibilities for fraud risk management, investigations, audit and accounting functions.
Improper Payments in Federal Programs - Presented by Ylang Ylang Taitt (Guidehouse)
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced on July 13, 2023, a five-principle approach for managing improper payments in response to a provision in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. According to the GAO, the federal government has made improper payments totaling approximately 2.4 trillion USD since 2003. A significant portion of these improper payments are due to an increase in emergency governmental aid programs in connection with national emergencies such as natural disasters, cyber-attacks, and pandemics. In emergencies, the risk of improper payments may increase because the need to provide assistance quickly can inhibit the effectiveness of controls. In this session, Ylang Ylang Taitt will discuss corrective actions implemented by federal agencies and practices to effectively manage improper payments.
