The conference of the Economic Crime Institute of Utica College is its premier vehicle for providing a forum for individuals from diverse organizations and agencies to learn from each other and enter into discourse on the critical issues they face. The thematic approach of each conference allows in-depth exploration of a significant challenge or problem.
The goal of ECI conferences is to provide the attendees with concepts and strategies that they can integrate with their considerable knowledge and experience, and apply to the challenges they face in their workplace. Tested and innovative fraud management methods and techniques, experiences of the distinguished speakers, cutting edge research reports, and white papers are presented to that end.
The Economic Crime Institute of Utica College conferences are academic in nature and focus on thought leadership in the field. They also serve to introduce the next generation of economic crime and fraud investigators, analysts, and managers, to the career world which they are about to enter.
The Economic Crime Institute of Utica College was founded in 1988. Its first conference was held in 1990 in Utica, New York. The theme was Computer Crime and was one of the first national conferences to be held on the topic. Since then, the ECI conferences have been at the forefront, tackling difficult issues faces by our increasingly technological, information-based, and global society.
