Organizations of all kinds and sizes are increasingly threatened by employee fraud. In fact, employee fraud represents the majority of all fraud threatening organizations.
Embezzlement, kickbacks, check fraud, financial statement fraud, and vendor billing schemes are just a few of the countless economic crimes committed by employees and outsiders. And with the march of technology, new computer and internet-driven schemes are being deployed by dishonest insiders all the time.
This webinar will provide attendees with a strong foundation of practical knowledge about how common frauds are committed, how to detect the red flags of these crimes and how to eliminate control deficiencies that provide opportunities for dishonest employees.
Why You Should Attend:
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 “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 of these critical areas, using carefully selected case studies to help illustrate the essential take-aways from the training.
