TOPIC:  The “Lucifer Effect” in a World of Occupational Fraud and Corruption

• The Fraud Triangle serves as a staple theorem explaining human behavior during the commission of fraud. However, the impact of group psychology is just as vital in explaining how good people do bad things, particularly when under the influence of corrupt institutional and cultural group values, or authoritative work environments.
• This presentation will discuss the application of the Lucifer Effect theorem, as a motivational tool in the commission of fraud and corruption, particularly when considering the power of situational influences.
• Methods of rationalizing this phenomenon during interrogation settings will also be highlighted through several case studies, one of which involved an Atlanta organized crime employee collusion case, which was investigated jointly with the US Secret Service. Several other high profile case studies of official corruption, investigated by the Ga. Office of Inspector General will be discussed as well.
• Additionally, your own behavior and what you are capable of doing under social forces of influence will be questioned and examined. The revelations from research in this area may very well shock you.

This presentation will provide one (1) Hour of Continuing Education for those that need it.
