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 an 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 initiatives such as anti-fraud and whistleblower policies.

This seminar will explore the steps your organization needs to take to develop a program that will effectively foster ethical behavior, promote compliance and deter fraudulent activities by your employees.



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.
