The risks from fraud, bribery, corruption, financial and economic crime are extremely serious, complex and more likely to materialise with significant detrimental impacts for countries, societies, administrations and organisations of all types. This threat needs to be countered in a strategic, systematic, integrated and professional manner to global good practice standards and governance expectations. This is critical for organisational sustainability and success, protection of stakeholder value and public confidence.
The best counter fraud strategy is based on deterrence, and where possible prevention, and requires good governance, risk management and robust control, all operating within a conducive culture of integrity and transparency. This needs to be rigorously audited and assured. Having a robust and committed counter fraud and corruption strategy in place, with the resourced capacity and competency to enforce it, will significantly deter and prevent fraud and corruption, and is also an essential prerequisite for successful detection, investigation and prosecution when it occurs.
This interactive course provides valuable insights into current international good practice techniques and aids delegates to evaluate, develop and improve fraud risk management.
