Fraud Risk Management via Enterprise Risk Management - March 2021 Fraud Session

Washington Metropolitan Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE DC)

Session 1:  Regulatory Changes Fintechs Should Expect Under the Biden Administration 

While the Biden administration is likely to encourage the innovation that Fintechs bring to the financial services landscape, particularly where the changes they effect promote financial inclusion, the administration has also signaled its intention to carefully scrutinize the actions of companies moving into territory previously dominated by heavily regulated financial institutions.  In this session, we will discuss how potential changes to the regulations affecting Fintechs are likely to reflect these at times competing priorities. (March 11, 3:05 pm)



Session 2:  Fighting Fraud in the Federal Pandemic Response

The Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC) was established as a committee of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) by the CARES Act. The mission of the PRAC is to promote transparency of the coronavirus response funds provided in the CARES Act and three related pieces of legislation, and over $900 billion in spending under the pandemic relief legislation, and provide oversight of those funds and the coronavirus response. In this session, Crystal Wolf (Guidehouse) and Linda Miller (Deputy Executive Director of PRAC) will discuss recent accomplishments of PRAC, the current needs and challenges PRAC faces, and how PRAC plans to accomplish its mission. (March 11, 4:10 pm)
