About the Webinar Series
Public sector officials are responsible for complex business processes and the effective allocation and use of taxpayer's dollars. Sadly, the best efforts can be thwarted by bad actors, insufficient business controls or even simple unintended human error. The result can vary from inefficient business processes, loss of funds, and all the way to fraudulent activity.
