Understand and manage fraud-related risks

 Fraud Risk Management – Course Outline

4[1]-Day Fraud Risk Management Training[2]
All organizations, large and small, public and private face fraud-related risks. In the public sector, the report of Auditors General chronicles large losses of public resources. On the other hand, globally, organizations in the private sector lose not less than 5% of their revenues to fraud. The situation is exacerbated by the ubiquitous use of technology that speeds up fraudulent activities and leads to even higher losses.
Organizations need sound, comprehensive and proactive anti-fraud approaches. A risk-based approach would enable the effective use of resources in the prevention and detection of fraud, and commensurate responses. This approach requires fraud risk management: identification, quantification, mitigation and monitoring of fraud-related risks.
In this course, participants will learn the specifics of fraud and fraud risk management. They will understand the most common types of fraud such as manipulation of assets, financial statement fiddling, and corruption. The course will focus on how organizations can counter fraud as part of their risk management initiatives, including:

  • Identifying, assessing and managing fraud-related risks;
  • Entrenching fraud risk management culture in organizations;
  • Developing systems of internal control that mitigate fraud risks;
  • Responding to identified cases of fraud;
  • Technology in fraud prevention, detection and response;
  • Fraud investigations
