Presentation: Educating Stakeholders on Fraud

Speaker: Constance M. Lehmann, Ph.D., CISA, CFE, Accounting Professor, University of Houston - Clear Lake, Former faculty advisor for the UHCL ISACA/ACFE Student Organization 

Dr. Lehmann brings over ten years of experience in banking and auditing to her classes. Her experimental research focuses on expertise development and case-based learning methods (with a focus on fraud detection and prevention). Her teaching approach includes "flipping" the classroom to allow class time to be spent doing interactive activities such as case discussions. Her teaching interests include fraud examination, internal auditing, IT audit and security, and accounting information systems. Over the past 17 years, she has published articles in both academic and practitioner journals such as Behavioral Research in According, Issues in Accounting Education, and the Journal of Forensic and Investigative Accounting. She also co-authored the last four editions of Accounting Information Systems: A Practitioner Emphasis with Dr. Cynthia Heagy. Dr. Lehmann has served as board member and academic liaison for ISACA (Greater Houston Chapter) and the AIS Educator Association, and is an active member of the Houston chapters of ACFE, ISSA, Infragard, and the IIA.

Presentation Description: The ACFE Report to the Nations consistently reports that the majority of fraud is discovered by tip or by accident. What does this mean to us as educators, auditors, law enforcement, business owners, and employees? This presentation is intended to provide recommendations in response to the following three questions:

1. What is the role of educators in providing students with fraud awareness and prevention education?

2. How can business owners and employees be proactive in increasing fraud awareness and prevention to avoid the pitfalls noted almost daily in the business section of the popular press?

3. How can all of us help to “pay it forward” to continue to raise awareness and contributeto the future of our profession and the ACFE?

Prevention of fraud includes not only thwarting historically popular schemes such as setting up a false vendor or skimming cash receipts, but also requires employees and businesses be cyber-savvy and aware of ways information assets can be compromised. This presentation will provide suggestions on how we can provide leadership in reducing fraud and its related losses.
