Several organisations rely on internal controls to prevent and detect fraud. This is unwise. The fraudster invariably knows your controls well and how to bypass them. Furthermore, in today’s competitive environment internal controls have often been compromised by frequent changes of management, the removal of management layers and employee empowerment. Complacency, poorly applied procedures, and the fast pace of change are the fraudster’s main allies. Add to this the ever-increasing reliance on technology, and it is no great surprise that fraud is escalating, both in frequency and magnitude – in all industry sectors and economies.
This course will assist in understanding Fraud indicators and how to mitigate fraud risks, and effectively manage investigations with proven tools and techniques.
