In the “Art of the Steal,” Frank Abagnale explores the skyrocketing number of crimes in cyberspace, where punishment for committing fraud, much less recovery of stolen funds, seldom happens. Since prevention is the best form of protection, Abagnale shows audiences how to defend themselves and their businesses against even the craftiest crooks.

The ever-increasing and constantly changing crimes in cyberspace typically cannot be traced. So Abagnale shows audiences how to identify and outsmart perpetrators of fraud, delving deeper into business topics including check forgery and the identification and prevention of other kinds of fraud.

Abagnale delves into the tricks of the scam trade, taking you deep inside the world — and the mind — of today’s con artist. He gives his audiences the step-by-step advice that has made him one of America’s most sought-after fraud prevention experts. Using eye-opening examples of specific scams, Abagnale shows how identifying and outsmarting the perpetrators in these types of cases could have prevented unheard-of losses.

Businesses are estimated to lose an unprecedented $400 billion a year from fraud of one sort or another. Abagnale proves that prevention is the best form of protection, because once you’re a victim, you won’t get your money back.

Abagnale follows his 60-minute speech, full of eye-popping visuals, with 10-15 minutes of Q&A during which audiences can ask him anything.
