"Virtual" Conference

Virtual Webinar*

Register by Friday, July 10. 2020

After careful consideration and based on the current conditions regarding the outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S., the Board of Directors of NYACT and NYSSIU have decided to move the Joint Summer Conference to a virtual meeting. We know that many of our members and attendees work in high risk environments and/or may have travel restrictions at this time.

The virtual conference takes place on the date of the originally scheduled NYACT - NYSSIU Joint Summer Conference to be held on July 15, 2020. Our goal is to provide a virtual experience that enables attendees to participate in a live virtual conference that will be recorded for future use. NYACT - NYSSIU joint conferences focus on training to improve investigating techniques and prevent insurance fraud in New York State – insight that is needed now more than ever.

While cancelling the live event is necessary for the health and well-being of all involved, it also creates a great opportunity to continue to expand our member benefits by providing virtual training you can utilize from where you work today. 

AGENDA

8:30-8:40 AM
WELCOME & UPDATES
NYSSIU President James Egner
NYACT Director Abby Curro

8:40-9:40 AM
“PSYCHTECH” – PSYCHOLOGY OF TECHNOLOGY
Mike Skiba, Vice President – Counter Fraud Strategies, at Inform-Risk Shield
Understanding what motivates criminals is the basis of criminological theory, and applying these proven theories in insurance fraud will assist with developing highly effective counter fraud strategies. This session will discuss the main components of criminological theory and how they can be specifically applied in a fraud setting. Attend if you dare to get into the mind of a fraudster.

9:50-10:50 AM
“IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT”- GETTING AHEAD OF TELEMEDICINE FRAUD
Frank Goldstein, Esq., Managing Partner at Goldstein Law Group
In our new world, telemedicine is now all the rage. Attendant to telemedicine is the propensity for greater and more sinister insurance fraud schemes. This presentation will focus on the new wave of potential telemedicine fraud schemes

11:00 AM-12:00 PM
LEANING TO THE RIGHT: APPLYING BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS TO THE ANTI-FRAUD FUNCTION
Roy A. Mura, Esq., Mura & Storm, PLLC
Can HOW we ask a question or require a task to be completed affect the truthfulness or accuracy of its response? Behavioral economics applies psychological insight into human behavior to explain economic decision-making, and insurance involves economic decision-making. Learn how using behavioral economics in the underwriting and claims stages can encourage honesty and discourage fraudulent behavior.
