Introduction to Fraud Prevention 

According to studies by the ACFE, your organization may be losing 5% of its revenue to fraud. Fraud prevention can increase your organization's financial performance as well as help to protect it from the financial and reputational catastrophe that major fraud often causes. It's not as complicated or expensive as you might think. Learn how organizations are combating fraud both effectively and economically.

Understanding Fraud Prevention and Reporting 

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires SEC registrants to report publicly on the effectiveness of their internal controls, including those related to the prevention and detection of fraud. But there are major pitfalls you need to know about and avoid. There are also other requirements and guidelines of which all types of organizations should be aware. Take advantage of the guidance available to improve your fraud prevention processes and make your public reporting reliable.

Internal Controls: General Applications and Resources 

Detailed controls are an important part of any fraud prevention plan, but they are frequently useless in preventing financial statement fraud by senior management (the most common kind). Senior executives simply override detailed controls. In this session, you will learn how ethics programs, telephone helplines and employee anti-fraud education are some of the general controls needed in any good fraud prevention program. We will also identify resources available from various organizations to help you build and evaluate your fraud prevention program.
