Employee fraud has become a serious and persistent cause of financial losses and reputational damage to organizations of all kinds... More and more employees are committing crimes such as embezzlement, check fraud, falsification of financial statements, collusion with corrupt vendors, and, most recently with Volkswagen, fraudulent manipulation of product specifications. Making matters worse, computer and Internet technology have given dishonest workers new ways to steal money, sensitive information, and even hard assets from their employers. The good news is that there are ways to both detect and protect against most forms of employee fraud and misconduct. In this webinar, you will learn how to identify potential perpetrators in your organization, detect signs of fraud, and create robust controls that will eliminate opportunities for fraud. The webinar will cover all of these critical matters and review case studies to illustrate the principles of fraud detection and prevention.
