E113 : The Ethical Accountant’s Role in Fraud Prevention

7.00 CPE Hours (Category 2)
Classroom

Programme Objective

Management text book theories do not always describe the real-world risks and threats of commerce. External threats include unscrupulous businesses and opportunists who seek to defraud or take advantage of your organisation. In addition, there are also internally driven threats. Whilst seemingly innocuous, they still have an adverse affect on business processes and efficiencies.
 

Programme Outline


To protect your organisation from fraud, you need to have an eye for the risks you face. This seminar will address 16 of the most commonly found externally driven frauds against businesses as well as the four internal frauds that hit efficiency and, if unnoticed, will bring down the company. This seminar will also report on the latest techniques as prevention measures and to protect against further recurrence, as well as the role of the Ethical accountant.
