Developing an Integrated Anti-Fraud, Compliance, and Ethics Program


Tone at the top can set a precedent for an ethical corporate culture, but a formal ethics program establishes 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. 

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



You Will Learn How To:

Assess an organization's ethical and compliance culture

Structure the organization to reinforce a culture of ethics and compliance

Design and conduct effective ethics and compliance training

Monitor the anti-fraud, compliance and ethics programs, and remediate any identified deficiencies

Create an effective anti-fraud, compliance and ethics policy

Implement a whistleblower reporting system

Address ethical breaches and noncompliance
