FVS Eye on Fraud
This new member newsletter is a semi-annual report on fraud trends and topics. The disclosure of data breaches continues to worry consumers and corporations every day. Now, a new and growing cyberattack risk exists that has gone largely unreported: business email compromise (BEC). The scheme is a variation of the practice of spear phishing, in which spoof or fraudulent emails are directed at company personnel in an attempt to obtain account numbers, access codes, or other sensitive information.

One-stop access to vital resources like Professional Standards, FVS Practice Aids, AICPA Accounting & Valuation Guides, Practice Management Tools and Templates, and more. This Library is a powerful research tool that gives you access to the most comprehensive, up-to-date forensic accounting and valuation information available in a searchable, web-based format. Free for FVS/CFF/ABV members (savings of $250).
