Remote Control: Mitigating Fraud in the Hybrid Work Environment


Temporary work conditions brought on by the pandemic created an opportunity for companies to revise their policies. Some businesses have shifted to hybrid attendance or even eliminated office space altogether. However, others that chose to fully return to the office without proper evidence or risk-based planning created a purgatory in which neither their lockdown nor return-to-office fraud risk management frameworks apply anymore.

This session will cover how the pandemic and hybrid work have affected the nature of internal misconduct, how organizations have pivoted their fraud risk management frameworks to mitigate risk across departments, and lessons learned from the pandemic to the present. Attendees will explore how internal misconduct has shifted across industries, where organizations’ controls lapsed, and real-world examples of internal misconduct tied to literal and figurative instances of poor oversight.


Working knowledge of internal risk management. Foundational experience in conducting risk assessments. Operational awareness of internal controls for risk mitigation.

You Will Learn How To:

Navigate the changing operational and fraud risk management frameworks and how those have shifted from traditional to hybrid work environments.

Identify internal misconduct and counteractive controls to mitigate risk in similar circumstances.

Apply best practices regarding risk management oversight, internal metrics and reporting.

Differentiate the challenges of and recommendations for establishing an appropriate tone at the top and a culture of compliance across the organization.
