Angela Doughty to Speak at the 2018 Fraud and A&A Conference

Intellectual property and privacy attorney Angela Doughty will be a featured speaker at this year's Fraud and A&A Conference in Greensboro on Monday, October 29.

The event, which is held every year by the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants ("ncaCPA"), is a combination of two conferences. The program offers attendees with "overlapping interests a more robust selection of topics," according to organizers.  The conference will focus on areas of accounting, auditing, and fraud for CPAs.

Angela's presentation will focus on the lifecycle of a major security incident. Here's a brief synopsis of her session:

This interactive session will cover a real ransom virus security incident from inception to closure following a step-by-step analysis of the events that transpired, the impact to the affected company, and the steps taken to resolve the situation and mitigate future incidents. Examples of life cycle stages that will be discussed are:

    • Identifying when an incident has occurred;
    • what actions should be taken in response to an incident and in what order;
    • what controls should be in place to mitigate the risk of an incident occurring;
    •  and what might be the potential cost to the impacted company.
