    Some details for the Fraud Investigation Techniques (FIT) 2022 Forum and the annual  September Workshop are in the process of being finalized. The CPE Training Plan will be updated as these details become available.

    The Chapter encourages all CFEs in Ontario's Golden Horseshoe Area, Southwestern Ontario, and Northwestern Ontario to save the dates of the training and register as soon as possible. As in past years, Chapter Members receive significant discounts on Chapter CPE training, and are reminded that they must log-into the ACFE-GTA website to obtain those Member prices.

    "We have worked diligently to continue to provide affordable, quality, and relevant training for all Certified Fraud Examiners," says Astra Williamson, the Chapter Senior Vice-President & Chief Learning Officer. "We look forward to the continuing strong support of all our Chapter Members as well as all Certified Fraud Examiners in the year ahead."

    Anyone who is interested in the prevention, detection, deterrence, and investigation of fraud and fraud-related matters (including identity theft, scams, etc.) are welcome to attend any of the GTA Chapter's training sessions.

    Further information is available by emailing the Chapter.

    "By 2030, connectivity will impact every aspect of daily life, on both the physical and psychological levels.

    Malicious threat actors will evolve to use and abuse technological innovation – as they always do.

    Among the predictions are:

    • AI tools democratize cybercrime on a whole new scale to individuals with no technical skill
    • Attacks cause chaos with supply chains and physical harm to humans through their cyber-implants

    • Social engineering and misinformation become more visceral and harder to ignore when delivered via ubiquitous Heads Up Displays (HUDs)

    • Massive Internet of Things (MIoT) environments attract sabotage and extortion attacks targeting manufacturing, logistics, transportation, healthcare, education, retail, and the home environment

    • AI-powered obfuscation makes attribution virtually impossible, pushing the security industry's focus towards incident response and Identity & Access Management (IAM) at the edge

    • 5G and 6G connectivity everywhere drive more sophisticated and precise attacks

    • "Everything as a Service" turns cloud providers into hugely lucrative targets for cyber-attackers

    • Grey markets emerge for those that want tools to confound workplace monitoring

    • Techno-nationalism becomes a key geo-strategic tool of some of the world's most powerful nations, with the gulf between them and the "have-nots" widening further

    Project 2030 is not a definitive vision of what will be, but a thought-provoking take on what could be — detailing a future that is plausible based on current technology and trends."
