Topic Background:
To effectively protect against employee fraud, it is first necessary to determine who in your organization is likeliest to be a perpetrator and why. With that knowledge, you can begin to understand what fraud fighters commonly refer to as “behavioral indicator” of potential fraud.
Beyond that, however, it is essential to gain the skills for assessing your organization’s risk of being a victim of the large and continuously expanding variety of employee-perpetrated frauds. Only then can you begin to build audit plans designed to identify the red flags of these offenses and, if found, examine clues that may point to the existence of actual fraud.

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.
This webinar will touch on all these critical areas, using carefully selected case studies to help illustrate the essential takeaways from the training.
