    December 4 - CFO - Staying Ahead in a Dynamic Economy

    • Cybersecurity for the CFO: Ransomware & Beyond
      • Cybercrime increased by over 500% during the pandemic. Many financial leaders are tasked with overseeing computer security, which is typically outsourced. Recall the maxim, trust but verify. Why do we not inspect those we pay to manage our cybersecurity? How many backup plans should we have? Verizon reports that 44% of all data breaches by companies with less than 1,000 employees were caused by malicious employees. How to test for security? Is insurance enough? What is the 'worst thing that could happen' and how to prepare for it? We will review a multi-step plan on how to enhance your data integrity. Be prepared, because at the end of day - you will be held accountable and responsible for cybersecurity.
    • Detecting Internal Fraud - Expect the Unexpected
      • Two-thirds of small businesses will experience some form of employee fraud according to the Better Business Bureau. 30% of business failures result from employee fraud. Current estimates indicate businesses lose 5% of their revenues to occupational fraud. Small businesses incur higher median losses when fraud occurs. Many businesses do not have adequate controls in place to prevent and detect fraud, often because of time, staff, or financial constraints. This session will discuss common frauds and fraudsters and identify realistic ways for businesses to take steps to prevent becoming the next victim.
    • Mergers & Acquisitions: Tips & Speed Bumps to Avoid
      • Mergers, acquisitions, and alliances have been - and will continue to be - major paths to organizational growth and increased competitive advantage. Despite the great initial promise of many mergers and alliances, few seem to yield the anticipated results. Numerous studies indicate that between 55% and 77% of mergers fail to accomplish their intended purpose. This course helps financial professionals, and their advisors identify, execute, and consummate mergers and acquisitions that create shareholder value while avoiding the many traps that can cause post-acquisition failure.
    • Transition Smoothly in Business: Success & Fun in Your New Role
      • Every professional will change roles many times. Is your position changing, e.g., a promotion, a new job, retirement, joining a Board, or a fresh college graduate? How to transition smoothly and understand those who you will work with? How do I fit in? How do I learn what to do and what not to do? Do not forget your life outside of work. It is a job, not there for your personal convenience to work when you want to. Can you have it all? How do I work with older/other/younger people? Everyone will move on to new opportunities, this seminar will prepare you on how to move on and be successful!
