Sebastian Adejumo, Clarksburg of MD, recently became a CFE after attending the CFE Exam Review Course in Austin, TX. When Sebastian is not working, he enjoys hanging out with friends and family. But this past November, Sebastian put sometime aside to accomplish his goal of obtaining the CFE credential. As an auditor, he feels the credential exposes him to different fraud risk assessment options and provides the skill set to identify and mitigate fraud.
