    With organizations losing an estimated 5% of their annual revenues to fraud, the need for a strong anti-fraud stance and proactive, comprehensive approach to combating fraud is clear. As organizations increase their focus on risk, they should take the opportunity to consider, enact and improve measures to detect, deter and prevent fraud.

    • Identify, assess and manage fraud risks from all sources
    • Support fraud risk management initiatives by establishing an anti-fraud culture and promoting fraud awareness throughout the organization
    • Develop a system of internal controls to address the entity’s fraud risks
    • Address and respond to any identified instances of fraud

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Identify fraud risks and the factors that influence them
    • Analyze existing risk management frameworks and their application to managing fraud risk
    • Develop and implement the necessary components of a successful fraud risk management program
    • Identify the elements of a strong ethical corporate culture
