NEW BRITAIN – The Greater New Britain chamber’s Education Committee and Central Connecticut State University are presenting a new webinar Wednesday morning, “20 Tips to Avoid Cyber-Theft.”

The webinar will be led by Jackie Jamsheed, associate professor of accounting at CCSU. She will be exploring how businesses can be susceptible to internal control gaps and fraud.

Attendees will get a better understanding of how businesses large and small have a hard time protecting themselves from internal fraud. The chamber shared that small and mid-sized businesses are frequently victimized and tend to suffer disproportionately large losses from fraud compared to larger organizations.

Jamsheed is originally from Iran. She teaches both an undergraduate and graduate course while conducting original research in the field of behavioral accounting. Prior to joining CCSU, she worked in senior management accounting, audit, finance and international business roles in Fortune 500 companies. She has earned her BS and BA from Syracuse University, an MBA from University of Virginia, a Masters in Accounting from CCSU and is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration from Florida International University.

The webinar is also being co-hosted by the Plainville, Greater Southington and Newington chambers of commerce and sponsored by the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain.

There is no charge to attend the webinar, but registration is required. Email or call the Greater New Britain chamber at 860-229-1665 to register.
