Whaling Fraud Process: Analysis and Prevention


This task is a reflection of your understanding of what the fraud process of “whaling” is, and how criminal enterprises go about conducting the business of whaling individuals and for what purposes. This is part social media analysis and part fraud knowledge integration.   You will produce a one-page document to “Red Dog” utilizing the formatting your cool Professor in Private Sector analysis has provided you in his course addendum.  

Your document should:

a) Research Jeff Weiner and LinkedIn (as a company) online and utilize social engineering to list any personal information that you have obtained that could be used as part of the fraud process.  You could also research the company to see what employees work there and in what positions (i.e. / hint – finances, security, payroll). 

b) Identify what “whaling” is and what mechanisms criminals will utilize in whaling to commit the fraud.

c) Based on your assessment and analysis, determine and list in your assignment what the main criminal objective will be and how they will undertake to gather $250,000 from the company, its employees or the CEO himself.

d) List any potential fraud prevention strategies used in “whaling” and describe what they are to your boss (he does not really know what they do to prevent this). 

e) Your assignment should range between 1000 and 1500 words and MUST include an executive summary OR an action report. It can be written in any format you wish when it comes to the document, but should look professional with some photos, headings and source references of where you learned about the fraud, the process and any social media hits. 

f) It should also include appropriate definitions for terms such as social engineering and others you discover in your assignment and discussed in class.
