Countering fraud and corruption is critical for organisational sustainability and success and to stem the erosion of stakeholder value and public confidence. The most effective counter fraud and corruption strategy encompasses deterrence, and where possible prevention. This requires good governance, risk management and robust control, all operating within a conducive culture of integrity and transparency. In turn, it needs to be rigorously audited and assured in line with international standards.
Having a robust and committed counter fraud and corruption strategy in place, with the resourced capacity and competency to enforce it, will not only assist organisations to deter and prevent fraud and corruption, but is also an essential pre-requisite for successful detection, investigation and prosecution when it occurs.
This course takes a holistic approach to proactively countering and auditing corrupt and fraudulent behaviour and activity, drawing upon current international good practice, techniques and technologies.
It will benefit those that have a role to play in preventing and detecting potential organisational fraud and corruption and those developing, reviewing or auditing organisations’ counter fraud and corruption strategies and arrangements.
On completion, you will be able to:
- Understand and assess the nature of fraud and corruption risks
- Appreciate current trends in fraud and corruption risks and mitigation strategies and initiatives
