Background Information 

Fraud is a crime that threatens both an organisation's profits and reputation. These threats are increasing so that it is vital that fraud risks are managed effectively – this course shows exactly how this can be done.

Objectives of the session

Participants will learn about the various types of fraud and the modern threat landscape, in particular the important and developing danger of cyber crime. They will also be made aware of the motives and behaviours of fraudsters and so will be in a position to spot behavioural red flags. A key part of developing an effective fraud risk management framework is being aware of those controls that work in practice and delegates will be taken through the key preventative measures and detective techniques used by organisations today to fight fraud.

  • Practical tips for accountants on preventing and detecting fraud
  • Review of cyber threats for SMEs and OMBs
  • Review of recent cases
