Session 1 - 9:00am | Digital Kidnapping: Holding Your Data
Hostage | Steve Stasiukonis, Managing Partner - Secure Network

Break: Coffee & Networking - 10:00am
Session 2 - 10:15am | Digital Currency | Tim Shanahan, Special
Agent/Polygraph Examiner, IRS Criminal Investigation-National Forensic Lab
Bitcoin and other
forms of digital currency have the potential to revolutionize the way that
commerce is conducted in the 21st Century and beyond. However, there are those who seek to use the
anonymity and speed of digital currency to exploit weaknesses and engage in
fraud and other aspects of criminal activity.
This presentation seeks to uncover the mystery surrounding Bitcoin and
other digital currencies, and enable participants to understand the
possibilities, as well as the pitfalls behind this new phenomenon.
Session 3 - 11:15am | Criminal use of the Dark Web | Tim Shanahan, Special
Agent/Polygraph Examiner, IRS Criminal Investigation-National Forensic Lab
This presentation will
develop increased awareness and understanding of existing and emerging areas of
fraud and other forms of criminal activity that take place on The Dark
Web. The Dark Web is the World Wide Web
content that exists on dark nets, which are overlay networks that use the
public internet but which require specific software, configurations or
authorization to access. The Dark Web
forms a small part of the Deep Web, and is often a breeding ground for criminal
and other forms of illicit activity.
Lunch - 12:15pm
Session 4 - 1:00pm | Data Breaches Today & The Unintentional
Insider Threat | Professor Donald Rebovich, Utica College & Professor Leslie R. Corbo,
While many data
breaches are caused by outsiders or a disgruntled employee, the unintentional
insider remains the largest threat to an organization. Employees are the backbone
of an organization and serve as its greatest asset; however, they can be its
vulnerability when working with proprietary and private information.
Millennials bring an interesting dynamic to the organization, as they are
technologically savvy, but tend to be more open with information. This
presentation reviews statistical data about breaches, and provides insight into
preventing and mitigating these breaches.
Break: Refreshments & Networking - 2:00pm
Session 5 - 2:15pm | Managing the Risk of Fraud | Dan Morrill, Owner at Wolf &
Having proper fraud
risk assessments and controls in place to mitigate those fraud risks is key to
preventing misappropriation of assets, theft of key data and accurate financial
statements. In this session, we will
explore how fraud risk aligns with the overall enterprise risk management
program and the keys to having a successful fraud risk program.
