St. Petersburg, FL, USA (April 27, 2012): The International Accounting Group (TIAG) will host its 17th international conference in San Francisco for its members on May 7-9, 2012. Among the topics will be a panel discussion titled Fraud Protection and Detection. Experts from the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), TIAG accounting firms and a lawyer from TIAG's sister legal alliance,TAGLawÂ®, will discuss experiences they have had in how businesses can prevent fraud and how, after the fact, they can recover funds wrongfully taken. TAGLaw, TIAG's sister alliance of independent law firms, will be holding its 27th international conference in parallel at The Four Seasons Hotel, and the two alliances will hold joint sessions on the third day of conference.
