Bribery and Corruption




CPE Credit: 16 ethics
Course Level: Overview
Prerequisite: None

Corruption schemes make up 35.4% of the reported fraud cases, with a median loss of $200,000, according to the 2016 Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse. Those often devastating effects, combined with a dramatic increase in the number of enforcements, have made bribery and corruption a key issue for many global organizations. The extension of anti-corruption laws to vendors presents additional vulnerability to companies in the United States. How do you ensure that both your employees and the third parties that play a critical role for your organization are following the rules?

Learn to protect your organization by effectively incorporating anti-bribery and corruption compliance policies, as well as effective detection and investigation procedures, into your anti-fraud strategy. During this two-day ACFE seminar, you will gain an understanding of common corruption schemes and anti-corruption liability, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), UK Bribery Act and other anti-corruption legislation. From recognizing red flags to managing a global investigation, you will gain the skills and knowledge to combat the threat of bribery and corruption in your organization.
