Why Should You Attend:

According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, frauds that are allowed to linger for 5 years had a median loss of nearly $1 million. The longer frauds last, the more financial damage they cause. Passive detection methods such as external audits tend to take longer to bring fraud to management’s attention, which allows the related loss to grow. Consequently, proactive detection measures — such as tips and management review procedures — are vital in catching frauds early and limiting their losses.

Maybe you are the controller, you’re in the compliance department, you’re management, you’re in accounts payable or maybe you’re on the audit and finance committee – each of these roles have a responsibility towards the organization to spot fraud red flags and take action to minimize financial losses and reputational damage.

This webinar will discuss how, by understanding the six symptoms of fraud and looking for them, you can significantly improve your chances of detecting and minimizing fraud. As executives, managers, internal auditors or rank and file employees, when it comes to internal fraud you may suspect it, suffer the consequences of it, or anticipate it but you rarely see it. You have to look for the symptoms, the red flags, the indicators of fraud.

Topic Background:

According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), organizations lose 5% of revenue to fraud every year. The ACFE’s research shows that at least one behavioral red flag was identified in 92% of fraud cases, and in 64% of cases, the fraudster displayed two or more behavioral red flags.

What are red flags? Steven Albrecht developed a theory about fraud in organizations. His theory stated – if we know what to look for we can see the signs of fraud. He theorized there are six signs or symptoms of fraud in all organizations: behavioral, lifestyle, analytical, accounting, internal control weaknesses and tips. These are the red flags.
