In "Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control, Second Edition," you'll learn how to develop a best-in-class fraud prevention and internal control compliance program that will ensure effective regulatory compliance in your organization as well as substantial savings from fraud losses, government prosecutions and shareholder litigation.

Authoritative and comprehensive, "Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control" covers:

  • The major compliance and corporate governance initiatives from 1985-2011
