Forensic Accounting and Fraud

Request Program Agenda

Overview

Corporate crime is an unlikable fact in today’s big business world. It has touched every country, every industry, and has no signs of stopping. Throughout the past 5 years, the number of reported cases of fraud and corruption has continued to grow radically across regions. Compounding this are the challenges faced by the audit team and a general lack of the necessary skill sets to collect the right audit evidence so critical to criminal investigations.

Virtually every entity suffers from fraud, though management might not know it. With fraud costing entities an estimated 5% of their annual revenues, organizations lacking proactive fraud prevention measures are the most at risk.

Occupational fraud is a significant threat to any organisation. Those organisations which employ fewer anti-fraud controls are more vulnerable to fraud.

Forensic auditing provides an investigation methodology and accounting analysis that is suitable to the court which will form the basis for discussion, debate and ultimately dispute resolution. This course concentrates on practical advice for internal auditors in the fight against fraud, with focus sessions on deterrence, data mining and interviewing in a stressed environment. It provides an incisive analysis of how fraud occurs within an organisation and explains the latest techniques for fighting it.
