ATLANTA (AP) - Some of the county's top forensic accountants are slated speak at the upcoming Fraud and Forensic Accounting Education Conference in Atlanta.
Speakers from the FBI's Atlanta bureau, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other agencies are expected to keynote discussions on white collar crime at the event, scheduled for May 16 through 18 at the J.W. Marriott.
Event spokeswoman Terri Thornton says the conference is designed to help accountants, educators, investigators, auditors and attorneys hone their skills. The event is being hosted by Georgia Southern University's Center for Forensic Studies in Accounting and Business.
The conference will cover technology-related issues, like using data analytics to fight crime, hacking and other cyber threats. Thornton says fraud trends in real estate financing, bankruptcy filings and intellectual property will also be covered.
