Countdown to Cornerstone Compliance and Audit Conference
Friday, May 22, 2015 6:05 AM

Compliance & Audit Conference

The 2015 Compliance and Audit Conference takes place in Oklahoma City June 8–10, and will be presented by industry-leading experts to ensure you get the latest on what's hot now and coming up in credit union regulatory compliance. Featured speaker Barry Thompson from the Thompson Consulting Group will lead a timely and essential discussion on "Elder Fraud: The Baby Boomer's Nightmare."

Get a whole new perspective on elder abuse and learn how your loan function can be a rewarding experience for criminals. Thompson says that as the Baby Boomer generation ages, elder fraud will be the biggest-growing segment for crime in our country. That's because criminals will target highly educated people for the greater riches they can provide. After gaining control of your elder accountholders, Thompson warns, the weakest link at your credit union becomes the target. 

Unfortunately, many of those who become victims will not admit it or won't prosecute the criminals because they don’t want anyone to know they were deceived. Thompson's session will review how the attacks work, as well as how to get the victims help.

Thompson comes to the Cornerstone Compliance and Audit Conference with a distinguished education and experiential background that very few in the financial services industry can match. He is currently the managing partner of Thompson Consulting Group and is a nationally recognized speaker, consultant, and former banker, with 36 years of service in the financial industry. He has been interviewed by Newsweek, Computer World, and other national and regional publications, and he's made presentations in Europe on internal fraud, Asia on bank security, and at the United Nations on identity theft.

Before he retired to establish his consulting firm, Thompson’s banking career spanned 22 years, serving in various leadership, compliance, and management capacities. He has investigated embezzlement cases, identity fraud cases, check kites, and almost all possible criminal incidents against financial institutions. He has handled over 900 security cases, been involved with investigations and prosecutions, and has testified before grand juries, county courts, bankruptcy courts, family courts, and the New York State Supreme Court.
