Course details

Full day (09:00-16:00)

Course Overview

Fraud is a risk to the profits and reputation of all organisations - and it is a risk that is increasing in current economic conditions. This interactive one-day course focuses on the role of the board of directors in fraud prevention and detection.

Course Content

The course examines occupational fraud and the main threats from cybercrime - as well as discussing recent cases and the lessons that can be learned - and provides practical tips for mitigating fraud risk. It is highly topical and very relevant to directors, given the likely changes to corporate reporting with a new requirement for directors to report on the actions they have taken to prevent and detect fraud.
