    Presentation Description: The presentation is designed to inform fraud examiners of the benefits of leveraging the often ignored and/or underutilized data residing in their organizational hotline/helpline programs. Attendees will be given multiple examples of how this data can be accessed and benchmarked to add value those in the fraud and/or E&C departments as well as to the organization as a whole. Mr. Agins will share insights from his years of experience and research designing, implementing, managing, and training on hotline/helpline programs and best practices..
