Frauds and scams continue to increase at an alarming doubledigit rate annually. The Nebraska Attorney General’s Office, using data culled from various studies and the more than 10,000 consumer calls and complaints it processed last year, delivers a presentation designed to limit the further victimization of Nebraskans and Nebraska law firms by arming them with the tools to guard against common scams including identify fraud and other forms of financial abuse. Techniques including phishing, hacking, social engineering, and the continued exploitation of known vulnerabilities will all be covered. A simple, easy-to-implement, five-point plan for safeguarding personal and professional information will also be provided.

Ryan Sothan, Outreach Coordinator, Nebraska Attorney General’s Office, Consumer Protection & Anti-Trust Division Ryan has statewide responsibility for developing and implementing community-based initiatives for educating Nebraskans in the areas of consumer fraud, elder financial abuse, predatory and illegal business practices, identity theft, and Internet safety. Ryan has served in the Attorney General’s Office over the past two administrations. Prior to this time he spent 30-plus years in the private sector primarily within the telecommunications and financial services industries.
