Background

Scott Langlinais writes on corporate fraud prevention for IRMI.com.

Scott Langlinais has dedicated the majority of his 21-year career as a CPA to fraud detection and investigation. Audit and finance professionals around the world have invited him in-house to educate their staff about proper fraud detection, prevention, and response. Business leaders from emerging companies to Fortune 500s, across many industries including public accounting, government, and not-for-profit, have asked him to assess their environment and design strategies to help defend the organization's people, reputation, and assets.

Mr. Langlinais employs IDEA® data analysis software to sift through system transactions and seek indicators of fraud, waste, and abuse. Using such techniques, he has helped companies recover millions of dollars from vendor overpayments, corruption, and unbilled revenues.

He speaks regularly at conferences hosted by the Institute of Internal Auditors, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association. The International Risk Management Institute publishes his quarterly articles about fraud prevention.

Prior to starting his own practice in 2003, Mr. Langlinais held public accounting and internal audit leadership positions, most recently serving as director of internal audit and security for a NASDAQ 100 software company. His investigations of fraud and gross negligence have resulted in removal of perpetrators, successful litigation, and recovery of millions of dollars.

Mr. Langlinais serves as the founder and director of the Dallas Tax Assistance Program, a not-for-profit organization that assists low-income families with federal tax return preparation.

He received a B.B.A. degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1991.
