Business, Law, and Justice of White Collar Crime Webinar

    Wednesday, February 23, 2022 at 12:00 PM until 1:30 PMEastern Standard Time

    While white collar crimes committed by individuals, businesses and government professionals are primarily nonviolent, they can have vast and damaging consequences for individuals, companies, and society at large. One only has to consider the global recession of 2008 caused by individual and company malfeasance to realize the immense effects that white collar crime can have on the economy and society. The underlying motivation for white-collar crimes is typically to obtain or avoid losing money, property, or services or to secure a personal or business advantage. White-collar crime includes offenses such as securities fraud, accounting fraud, embezzlement, healthcare fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, and labor or environmental violations. Offenders rely on technical expertise often acquired through their occupations to enact their fraudulent schemes. New technologies and financial products have inspired a vast expansion of opportunities for white-collar crime.

    Join our webinar to hear experts from varied organizations that respond to white-collar crime: regulatory agencies, law enforcement at the federal and local levels, prosecutors, and defense attorneys specializing in white collar offenses (regulatory, civil, or criminal).

    Discussion topics include:
    • What trends exist on profiles for who commits white-collar crime?
    • What are the biggest current trends in white-collar crime?
    • What are the economic and social costs of white-collar crime?
