MICHAEL “BRET” HOOD

WORKSHOP 1: THE DARK TRIAD OF ETHICALITY: HOW ILLUSORY SUPERIORITY, BOUNDED ETHICALITY, AND CONFIRMATION BIAS IMPACT ETHICAL DECISION-MAKING

WORKSHOP 2: DETECTING DECEPTION: THE BODY TELLS A STORY, BUT THE CHANCES OF READING IT ACCURATELY ARE PROBLEMATIC?

The Dark Triad of Ethicality: How Illusory Superiority, Bounded Ethicality, and Confirmation Bias Impact Ethical Decision-Making – While financial professionals often have the best intentions, certain mental processes can interfere with our objectivity. Three particular maladies, referred to as illusory superiority, bounded ethicality and confirmation bias, can indirectly lead fraud examiners to flawed conclusions and examinations — which can directly affect their credibility. In this session, fraud examiners will learn methods to ensure that they conduct a fair and impartial fraud examination to the best of their abilities.

You will learn how to:

  • Create mental triggers to improve ethical outcomes
  • Determine how perception affects decision-making
  • Evaluate methods to mitigate the negative effects of power and myopic vision
  • Identify the effects of abstraction on risk assessment and mitigation
  • Generate different perspectives and frames to improve objectivity

Detecting Deception: The Body Tells A Story, But The Chances of Reading It Accurately Are Problematic?  – Interviewers have been taught for years to rely on non-verbal behaviors to assist in detecting deception when interviewing witnesses and suspects, but what happens if your interpretations of these signals are flawed?  In this interactive block of instruction, you will test your ability to detect deception, discuss the latest scientific research concerning the reliability of detecting deception through someone’s non-verbal behaviors, and learn how to apply certain social psychological behaviors that could improve your chances of detecting deception in interviews.

Learning Objectives:  After this block of instruction, the participants will be able to:

  • Define baseline behavior.
  • Develop methods to improve focus.
  • Evaluate methods to increase an investigator’s attention span.
  • Define emotional leakage.
  • Determine best practices to detect deception in the interview process.
  • Implement the rule of reciprocity in interview sessions.
  • Create methods to leverage the consistency principle in interviews.

JOHN WALLHOFF
IT AUDITOR AND INFORMATION & CYBER SECURITY PROFESSIONAL

WORKSHOP: CREATING ALGORITHMS FOR AI ANALYTICS – A WORKSHOP ABOUT HOW TO GET STARTED USING AI DESIGNED ANALYTICS

Algorithms are used for data driven decision making, but the algorithm mindset in GRC is still a novel field. When it is applied it will enable you to explore data to understand behaviour, control weaknesses and opportunities within your organization in a different way than what detailed review of individual transactions does.

The value of algorithm is the reduction of reports you have to go through when you are equipped with a digital sense, that will assist you with the decision about when and what detailed transactions you really need to focus on together with other underlying information. Equally important is the interface between the output from your algorithms and the manual interpretation of the algorithms you have created.

This is combined no-computer/with-computer workshop, where you need a laptop with Excel as your analytics tool to get the most out of it. We will touch use cases for Access, Fraud, Incidents and Sales where algorithms are created from initial planning and brainstorming to creation and execution.

Beginner level

Learning objectives

  • How to plan and design algorithms
  • How to define data requirements and obtain data
  • How to create your own algorithms using Excel as your tool
  • How to gain usefulness of algorithms when you review the output

John is an IT auditor and Information- & cyber security professional with analytics as a special field of interest. For more than 25 years he has been helping organisations in private and public sector, where he has developed several applications to get the most out of data stored and processed within an organisation.
