Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE)

ACFE certifies the anti-fraud professionals with the Certified Fraud Examiner(CFE) after testing them with 4 domains as listed on their official site.

Based on the info in the official website, " The mission of ACFE Foundation is to increase the body of anti-fraud knowledge and support future anti-fraud professionals worldwide through the funding of scholarships, endowments, research, and other educational projects. ACFE Foundation works to encourage students to pursue careers in fraud examination and provide resources for research on the detection and deterrence of fraud. "

ACFE has been there for decades, and to be precise they were here even before the information era or the Dot-Com world. There are many CPA's and CFA's who used to get certified as CFE and right now, many information security professionals are getting themselves certified with CFE.

EvilFingers thought of talking about anti-fraud section, since we thought that it was interesting to start some projects on the same. If you have any ideas or would like to collaborate in any similar stuff or in any other projects, kindly contact us as soon as possible as we work on FCFS(First-come-first-served) basis.

Thank you & Regards
