Controlling the Risk of Asset Misappropriation




CPE Credit: 16
Course Level: Overview
Prerequisite: None

Asset misappropriations pose a risk to all organizations.  According to the ACFE's 2020 Report to the Nations, these schemes are by far the most common form of occupational fraud, occurring in 86% of cases reported and resulting in a median loss of $100,000. By identifying areas of vulnerability and implementing targeted preventive and detective measures, anti-fraud professionals can reduce the potential impact of these threats on their organizations.

Learn how to stay a step ahead of the most common form of employee fraud with the ACFE's 2-day seminar, Controlling the Risk of Asset Misappropriation. This training course will help you assess your organization’s risk of asset misappropriation and will provide best practices for deterring and identifying the costly theft or misuse of company resources.
