Internal Control/Anti-Fraud Program Design for the Small Business



BY STEVE DAWSON, CFE


Description

This book offers a practical guide for designing and implementing an internal control and anti-fraud program that meets the needs of private, nonpublic small businesses that are not subject to the complex Sarbanes-Oxley Act. In it, author and forensic accounting expert Steve Dawson, CFE, outlines the six elements of an effective anti-fraud program design:

  • Anti-fraud environment
  • Fraud risk assessment
  • Control activities
  • Information
  • Communication and monitoring
  • Routine maintenance

Dawson reveals how the six elements combine to create a solid framework built on reliable internal controls that are proven fraud deterrents. Using this book as a guide, any small business can create a sound, well-thought-out anti-fraud program specifically tailored to its needs.
