Fraud can happen at any time, and it can cause major damage. Employee benefit plans are packed with personal and sensitive information about individuals, members and dependents—a virtual goldmine for hackers. Fraud prevention is everyone's responsibility, including plan sponsors, fiduciaries, administrators and vendors. This conference will uncover emerging trends in fraud prevention, share the latest in cybersecurity and deterrence of data breaches, and provide instructive guidance for internal controls and risk prevention.
