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 identified instances of fraud.

Many organizations don’t think about the fraud issue until something has occurred or been identified and they need someone to perform an investigation. The topic of fraud — whether it relates to awareness and prevention techniques, fraud auditing, recent frauds in corporate America, or the criminal mind — continue to be on the radar of investors, shareholders, and regulators. With ongoing technological advances in IT infrastructure, new and emerging fraud methods are continually being identified.
