Dalton State Participates in International Fraud Awareness Week

November 14, 2014

As a participant in the University of Georgia’s International Fraud Awareness week, Nov. 16-22, Dalton State College will host two events to bring awareness to fraud and further promote an ethical culture on campus.

The theme for International Fraud Awareness Week is “The Spirit of USG.” The activities planned will emphasize stewardship, prevention, integrity, responsibility, inspiration, and trust.

Tuesday’s event will be a lecture from motivational speaker Phillip Hurd from 10:30 to 11:30 in Goodroe Auditorium of Gignilliat Memorial Hall.

Hurd is a national speaker on success and motivation, ethics, causes of fraud, auditing, and personal achievement. The unique perspective of understanding what happens when things, and people, go wrong have given him unique insight into how to make things go right, actions that will help your career, and what will happen if you stray from those actions.

Hurd has been a valued member of the Georgia Tech Department of Internal Auditing since June of 1999. In July of 2007, he stepped up to lead the department as the Director. He also holds professional certifications as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional and Certified Information Systems Auditor, and holds a master’s degree in Information Systems from Western International University.

Thursday, there will be a screening of “Identity Thief,” starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy at 6:30 p.m. in Goodroe Auditorium. Free popcorn will be provided.

Both events are free and open to the public.
