How a lottery ticket, a hot dog, and Bigfoot foiled the largest lottery fraud in US history.

Your day's going great... and then you get the unexpected call that a fraud may have occurred under your watch. Your decision and direction could affect jobs, your business, and personal friendships. As most companies focus on external hacking and fraud, Terry Rich will discuss an internal vendor fraud case to explore how established checks and balances, and a little luck, helped crack the largest lottery fraud in US history.
