About the Conference:

March is Fraud Prevention Month in Canada, and a small group of government and law enforcement agencies, associations and businesses involved in Canada’s Fraud Prevention Forum are planning an interactive, information–packed, two–day, international event.

Preventing Fraud in a Digital Age is the focus of the first–ever fraud prevention conference, March 7 & 8, 2011. The event is being held at Ottawa’s Fairmont Château Laurier.

Conference delegates will learn about the current state of fraud, investigate the most at–risk audiences, share best practices on recognizing and preventing fraud, and – ultimately – provide recommendations that the partners in fraud prevention can then implement.

Cost
$250 plus 13% HST Total: $282.50
