The field of risk management has attracted increased mainstream attention in the wake of the economic meltdown as the public has begun to comprehend the negative effects of uncontained risk. Unfortunately, many risk management professionals tend to underestimate the role of fraud in the scope of their professional duties.
With organizations losing an estimated 5 percent of their annual revenues to fraud, the need for a strong anti-fraud stance and proactive, comprehensive approach to combating fraud is clear. As organizations increase their focus on risk, they should take the opportunity to consider, enact and improve measures to detect, deter and prevent fraud. This course will explain how organizations can integrate anti-fraud initiatives into their risk management programs to:
Identify, assess and manage fraud risks from all sources
Support fraud risk management initiatives by establishing an anti-fraud culture and promoting fraud awareness throughout the organization
Develop a system of internal controls to address the entity’s fraud risks
Address and respond to any identified instances of fraud
