Forensic accounting is a specialty practice area where accounting, auditing and investigative skills are used to analyze and present information that is suitable for use in a court of law.

 

Topics covered include fraud detection and fraud investigation techniques, valuation of closely held businesses, lost profits analyses, and various types of litigation support services. Fundamental legal concepts governing expert witness testimony are also examined, and students are required to quantify economic damages in cases.

 

By the end of the course students are able to understand both the extensiveness and the causes of fraud and administrative crime in our society, examine the types of fraud and fraud schemes that affect business enterprises, explore methods of fraud detection and prevention, and increase their ability to recognize potential fraudulent situations.

 

This in-person CPE Event provides an in depth look at the concepts along with the techniques and processes used by forensic accountants to identify whether fraud has occurred and to quantify it. This timely, in-person CPE training seminar is designed for the accountant or internal auditor who has to be aware of how to use a forensic accounting approach in the audit function.

Speaker and Presenter Information

John C. Blackshire, Jr., CPA is the CEO of The Accountware Group, Inc. (TAG) of Austin, TX.  He has over 40 years of business management, internal control, software development and auditing experience.  TAG helps companies improve their business processes, implement financial systems, and comply with the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
                
During John's career, he has conducted internal control audits, designed business operations, implemented automated financial systems, and created quality control methodologies.  He has written numerous articles, system user guides, presented continuing education seminars, and published booklets on best practices in accounting, finance and information technology management.

John started his professional career at KPMG as a financial auditor. His clients included insurance companies, banks, manufacturing firms and non-profits. A number of his clients were public companies.

He moved from Public Accounting into the application software business. The first software firm focused its products on the application software needs of the insurance industry. At this firm, he work in the development of new products, supporting existing products, providing consulting assistance to clients and the direct sale of software. These applications included general accounting, investment accounting, procure to pay, policy process, claims process and administrative applications. His development and support activities included designing and setup of what is now called "artificial intelligence" driven applications. One of these applications used phonics driven rules to determine the names to return from a data base to assist in policy holders services. This application was also used by the FBI to identify possible suspects within their know "criminal" data base using a phonics driven lookup.
   
Blackshire moved from an insurance industry focused software supplier to one that was the first to offer data base processing in the ERM space in the early 1980s. At this firm, he spend several years in the financial software business designing, supporting, consulting and selling financial systems to the cross industry marketplace. 
                
John received his undergraduate degree in accounting from the University of South Carolina.  He is a member of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and helped plan their International Conference, and is a member of the international business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi and the honors accounting fraternity Beta Alpha Psi.   John and David Marshall have been presenting informative and entertaining seminars on internal control, corporate governance and Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance since 2004.
