Developing an Integrated Anti-Fraud, Compliance and Ethics Program


CPE Credit: 16
Online Virtual Seminar | February 23-24, 2021
Course Level: Overview
Prerequisite: None

Tone at the top can set a precedent for an ethical corporate culture, but a formal ethics program provides a clear framework for the organization’s expectations, policies and potential consequences.  While compliance and ethics are the foundation of such programs, the pervasive threat of fraud makes it critical to also integrate fraud-focused initiatives into the program, including anti-fraud and whistleblower policies.

Learn best practices for creating an effective compliance and ethics program that incorporates anti-fraud measures. This virtual seminar will explore the essential steps your organization needs to take in developing a program that will effectively foster ethical behavior, promote compliance and deter fraudulent activities by your employees.
