Programme Objective

Do you know that according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiner’s 2014 Report to the Nations, employees committed 42% of occupational frauds but only caused a median loss of USD 75,000? Managers ranked in the middle, committing 36% of frauds with a median loss of USD 130,000. Conversely, owners/executives only accounted for 19% of all cases, but they caused a median loss of USD 500,000. The higher the perpetrator’s level of authority, the greater fraud losses tend to be!
Given that fraud occurs at all level, with fraud losses increasing in tandem with the perpetrator level, this programme examines the key ethical dilemma commonly faced by each level of personnel in your organisation. It sharpens participants’ ability to identify red-flags of unethical practices and to implement preventive and detective anti-fraud controls. The programme guides participants to drive entity-wide initiatives to manage fraud and to understand practical challenges in their efforts.
