Understand and manage fraud-related risks
All organizations, large and small, public and private face fraud-related risks. In the public sector, the Auditor General reports chronicling large losses of public resources. Globally, organizations in the private sector lose not less than 5% of their revenues to fraud. The situation is exacerbated by the ubiquitous use of technology that speeds up fraudulent activities and leads to higher losses.
Organizations need sound anti-fraud and comprehensive proactive anti-fraud approaches. A risk-based approach would enable the effective use of resources used in the prevention and detection of fraud and commensurate responses. The approach requires fraud risk management: identification, quantification, mitigation, and monitoring of fraud-related risks.
In this course, participants will learn the specifics of fraud and fraud risk management. They will understand the most common types of fraud such as manipulation of assets, financial statement fiddling, and corruption.
