Auditors and financial managers are not expected to have the expertise of forensic investigators, but they should have adequate knowledge of the aspects of fraud and maintain a skeptical mind when it comes to reviewing potential violations. Like internal controls, the economy and business strategy, fraud continues to evolve and auditors must stay abreast of its root causes. This training program will highlight these root causes and detail suggested mitigation and investigation techniques.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
Inherently, organizations strive to ensure the individuals they hire are honest and ethical. In the same vein, executives often find themselves avoiding the open topic of fraud awareness because of the concern that “fraud awareness may lead to people committing fraud”. However, this very fact can itself contribute to an atmosphere that allows inappropriate behavior to happen. Depending upon the fraud perpetrated the professional who takes on the investigative and examination role may vary. However, all compliance and risk professionals can perform a vital role in their organizations’ anti-fraud program.
This webinar will address why most organizations would agree that pro-active identification of risks is more beneficial than reactive mitigation. Similarly, it will discuss how a pro-active process for training and educating the employee population about fraud can serve a much greater benefit than simply reacting to identify instances of fraud.
