Fraud Detection and Prevention course is available Online.

Customized dates and one-on-one sessions can be organized.


It is estimated that one in three organizations suffer from the effect of fraudulent activity, and recent developments in regulation mean that fraud can have significant consequences for managers and senior executives. Fraud can damage an organization’s reputation as well as reduce its profit and value. Many organizations only think about fraud risk when they have already been affected, but a more proactive approach is needed to prevent and detect fraud.
This one-day course provides an insight to the main practicalities relating to preventing and detecting fraud. The course begins by exploring the main types of fraud and the implications of fraud for an organization and its managers and senior executives. The course then becomes practical - focusing on how to spot signs of fraud, the methods involved in forensic investigations to quantify the impact of fraud, and the policies and procedures that should be put in place to prevent the occurrence of fraud.
