This fraud training program will focus on understanding the fraud problem and what propels employees to commit fraud. The course will also offer essential fraud detection tools and techniques and highlight best practices for developing and implementing anti-fraud controls. The ultimate goal of all of this, of course, is to lay the groundwork for pinpointing and then remediating internal control deficiencies that provide the opportunities for dishonest employees to engage in fraudulent activity.
Organizations of all kinds and sizes are increasingly threatened by employee fraud. In fact, employee fraud represents the majority of all fraud threatening organizations.
Embezzlement, kickbacks, check fraud, financial statement fraud and vendor billing schemes are just a few of the countless economic crimes committed by employees and outsiders. And with the march of technology, new computer and Internet-driven schemes are being deployed by dishonest insiders all the time.
This webinar will provide attendees with a strong foundation of practical knowledge about how common frauds are committed, how to detect the red flags of these crimes and how to eliminate control deficiencies that provide opportunities for dishonest employees.
