Small Business | Big Fraud (1 CPE)

How to approach and serve businesses with < 100 employees

SIMPLE. CONVENIENT. NOT BORING.

BE A BETTER FRAUD FIGHTER IN JUST 50 MINUTES.


COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Every large enterprise first started as a small business. From an idea to a prototype, starting operations in garages and later upgrading to warehouses, they all start small.

In the rewards and pains of building a small business, whether it grows big or stays small, the focus tends to first lean to making profit before ever dedicating resources on preventing the loss of profit, or in our case, fraud.

Some business owners may be ignorant to the risks of fraud, others accept the risk until they get the business going and then build in and bolt on protective controls. The reality however, is that too many in both scenarios don't do anything to prevent or detect fraud until it is too late.

To be able to prevent and detect fraud in a small business, you need to first understand the world of a small business owner, ensuring you are speaking their language, offering services that they actually need and want and serving your clients better than your competitors.

Whether fraud occurs from a trusted employee, a lack of segregation of duties, failure to implement simple and effective internal controls, these could all be prevented if we captured the attention of the business owner and helped them implement ahead of time.

In any sized business, detection is ideal but PREVENTION is a must, especially in small business.

Our goal with this course is to help you know how to approach small business owners and help implement proactive, preventative anti-fraud controls.

As with any of our courses, if you are not a better fraud fighter after taking this course, we will give you your money back and you can keep the CPE certificate.

Hi I'm Matt. I love all things Cybersecurity and Anti-Fraud. Professionally, it's what I do. I also love helping others break into these awesome industries so please connect with me if you're considering a similar career. Both domains are so interrelated and dynamic yet the industries still have so much integration and collaboration to do. We're just getting started in this space.


I was fortunate to break into both Cybersecurity and Anti-Fraud when it was next to impossible to get in. Everyone wanted someone with 3-5 years experience - How do you get experience if no one is willing to give you experience? It took applying to over 50 jobs before I got a call back (which ironically ended up being a wrong number), but nonetheless through networking and perseverance, I was hired as an intern, then a Security Consultant and then a Global Fraud examiner and the rest is history.

I've been blessed with amazing employers, teams and leaders to work with that have supported me on this journey. From implementing anti-fraud programs from scratch, consulting with small brick and mortars locally to advising Fortune 10, 20, 50, 100... businesses with fraud prevention and detection strategies, it's a fulfilling dream career. I have many to thank, but most importantly, my amazing, supportive family.

Although I am a certification junkie (see below if you care) and take pride in continuous improvement, I’m teachable and lucky enough to know that I don't know it all. I depend on the influence and guidance of many that are more expert in these fields.

Lastly, I am not afraid to fail nor admit my mistakes. It's how I grow and learn and how I have learned that others appreciate the real, imperfect me.

If anything in this intro struck a chord with you and you'd like to talk shop, have a pro-bono consultation call or just need help breaking into Cybersecurity or Anti-Fraud, please connect with me. I'd love to help however I can.


Here are a few certifications I currently hold:

  • CFE - Certified Fraud Examiner | Association of Certified Fraud Examiners
  • ITPM - Insider Threat Program Manager | Software Engineering Group | Carnegie Mellon University
  • CISSP - Certified Information Systems Security Professional | (ISC)2
  • GIAC GSLC - Security Leadership Certification | SANS Institute
  • GIAC GSEC - Security Essentials Certification | SANS Institute
  • CRISC - Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control | ISACA
  • CCSK- Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge | Cloud Security Alliance
  • ITILv3 - Information Technology Infrastructure Library | EXIN


Most of all, I love spending time with my family and being outdoors, away from technology and distractions.
