Seminar Topics

  • Bribery and Corruption

    Bribery and Corruption

    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 seminar, you will gain an understanding of common corruption schemes and anti-corruption liability, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), U.K.’s Bribery Act (2010) 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.

  • Conducting Internal Investigations

    Conducting Internal Investigations 

    Conducting an internal investigation can be a difficult task. An investigation into employee wrongdoing can be costly, disruptive and time-consuming, and can also lead to a variety of legal problems and other unexpected complications if it is not conducted with the utmost care and confidentiality. However, a well-run internal investigation can enhance a company’s overall well-being and can help detect the source of lost funds, identify responsible parties and recover losses. It can also provide a defense to legal charges by terminated or disgruntled employees. But perhaps most importantly, an internal investigation will signal to other employees that the company will not tolerate fraud. 

    Conducting Internal Investigations will prepare you for every step of an internal investigation into potential fraud, from receiving the initial allegation to testifying as a witness. In this course, you will learn how to lead an internal investigation with accuracy and confidence by gaining knowledge about various topics, such as relevant legal aspects of internal investigations, using computers in an investigation, collecting and analyzing internal and external information, interviewing witnesses and writing reports.

  • Contract and Procurement

    Contract and Procurement Fraud  

    The rise in contract management and the outsourcing of goods and services has created an increase in procurement fraud, which can occur at any stage of the contracting and procurement process. Appropriate controls, fraud prevention strategies and proper tendering processes are necessary for the fight against this fraud. This course will teach you the best practices for preventing, detecting and investigating contract and procurement fraud. 

    Organisations can be defrauded through collusion among bidders, between employers and contractors, and by sole procurement employees. Consequently, you need to be aware of the vulnerabilities and risks associated with fraud schemes that attack the purchasing, procurement and contract functions. Acquire the knowledge, skills and techniques you need to prevent, detect and deter these devastating frauds. 

  • Fraud Risk Management

    Fraud Risk Management  

    With organisations losing an estimated 5% of their annual revenues to fraud, the need for a strong anti-fraud stance and proactive, comprehensive approach to combating fraud is clear. As organisations 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 you can integrate anti-fraud initiatives into your 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 organisation.
    • Develop a system of internal controls to address the entity's fraud risks.
    • Address and respond to any identified instances of fraud.  
  • Professional Interviewing Skills

    Professional Interviewing Skills

    By learning the fundamental interviewing techniques, you will learn how to get more information from subjects and how to detect deception and read body language during interviews. 

    Are people lying to you? Do you know for sure? When do actions speak louder than words? Fraudsters, clients, customers, colleagues and even your own employees may each be hiding something from you. This course will teach you how to be more effective in asking direct and follow-up questions, while evaluating both verbal and nonverbal responses, so you can detect lies and uncover the truth during interviews.
