In today’s business climate, ethics is more than simply taking the moral high road—it is a matter of self-preservation. Fraud examiners face many situations that require ethical reflection as part of their daily lives, and, often, there is no obvious line between right and wrong. Consequently, CFEs might find themselves on a slippery slope when it comes to determining the best course of action.
This course will discuss how codes of ethics, conduct and practice in general—and the CFE Code of Professional Ethics and CFE Code of Professional Standards, in specific—provide guidance for fraud examiners when they are confronted with ethical uncertainty in professional situations.
What you will learn:
Articulate the benefits of having codes that govern the actions of professionals
Examine the Certified Fraud Examiner Code of Professional Ethics to understand how it applies to Certified Fraud Examiners
Express why professionalism, diligence, ethical conduct, integrity, and competence are important to anti-fraud professionals
Analyze the Certified Fraud Examiner Code of Professional Standards to understand how it applies to Certified Fraud Examiners
Reason through fact scenarios to identify possible violations of the Certified Fraud Examiner Codes of Professional Ethics and Professional Standards
