  “Their money was just lying around: if it wasn't me, it would have   been stolen by someone else. Frankly, it would have been rude   not to take it.”
Joyti De-Laurey, a former secretary at the prestigious bankers Goldman Sachs who stole 4.4 million British Pounds.

For many companies, the time to act is now.
For others, now may be too late!

Fraud can strike any organization, at any time!
Understandably, fraud is not the top priority of busy managers or successful organizations, until it strikes. Fraudsters succeed because they have the time and incentive to pay attention to detail, finding and exploiting control weaknesses and taking the unwary victim by surprise. Fraud is always concealed in the details and it is easy to be wise after the event. This program strongly encourages organizations to reconsider their control priorities and put controls in place before it happens .

Is your organization already at risk?
Contrary to popular belief, fraud is not primarily a problem of employee dishonesty but increasingly involves senior managers, suppliers, customers, competitors, international criminal groups and is achieved by deception, extensive collusion, false reporting, bribery and technological abuse. Fraud is growing exponentially with the top ten risks being:

1. Bribery and corruption
2. Conflicts of interest
3. False reporting of financial performance to increase bonuses, ramp share values or to     deceive financiers
4. Frauds in marketing, advertising and sales
5. Frauds in purchasing and procurement, construction and building maintenance
6. Frauds in finance and accounting
7. Frauds in logistics and distribution
8. Disbursements and especially electronic payments
9. Theft of intellectual capital and trade secrets
10. Frauds by competitors, including counterfeiting and parallel trading

Being forewarned is forearmed!

It is seldom a single control weakness that causes catastrophes, but rather a failure to detect signs that things are not quite right. The art is to ensure that within a framework of shared values, there is a prudent baseline of preventive controls, supported by good intelligence which enables risks to be avoided. Fail-safe procedures to investigate and recover from losses are also vital, yet most frauds are detected by accident and potential recoveries not pursued.

This program shows you how to

  • IDENTIFY the real risks of fraud and compliance breaches faced by your     organization
  • DETECT and RECOVER from erosive frauds and minimize the possibilities of     catastrophic risks fraud
  • INVESTIGATE and make full financial recovery when fraud is detected
