Remote Control: Mitigating Fraud in the Hybrid Work Environment (On-Demand Webinar)

Future Of Fraud 2024 Expert Predictions
Course Level
Delivered via


Temporary work conditions brought on by the pandemic created an opportunity for companies to revise their policies. Some businesses 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 course covers how the pandemic and hybrid work affected the nature of internal misconduct, how organizations pivoted their fraud risk management frameworks to mitigate risk across departments and lessons learned from the pandemic. This course also explores how internal misconduct 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:

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.

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

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