TOPIC: Internet Fraud Seminar - Recognition / Reaction / Resolution
In the last 10 years internet fraud has become a feature of everyday business practice. The bare faced cheek of the confidential trickster of yesteryear has now been replaced with the insidious skills of the boiler house fraud, internet identify theft and CEO fraud. The purpose of this discussion will be to help you to identify circumstances in which such fraud may arise, the appropriate way in which to respond and should it be necessary, how, as a victim, to initiate to effect a meaningful recovery strategy.
SPEAKER: Jeff Lane
Partner, Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Practice areas: Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Insolvency and Restructuring, Employment and Financial Services Regulation and Compliance Jurisdictions: United Kingdom (1989); Hong Kong (1990); Australia (1991)
