Instructor for this course

One of the easiest ways for auditors to demonstrate measurable value is by helping management prevent theft, wrongdoing and outright fraud. Few managers have meaningful fraud prevention skills – creating an overwhelming need for help. Auditors have the knowledge of controls and critical behaviors needed to prevent fraud, and the forum to deliver this critical service. All we need is the structure of how to deliver.

In this program, you learn: 

  • The Three Level Fraud Risk Management Framework
  • The six critical actions to prevent business fraud – and exactly how audit can provide the coaching to make it all happen
  • How to lead manager and staff Fraud Risk Brainstorming discussions
  • Critical anti-fraud controls and daily behaviors for managers and staff
  • The secrets of One-Step Fraud Prevention – incredibly simple, surprisingly powerful

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize how to assist management in their fraud prevention efforts
  • Identify the six critical actions every organization must take to prevent fraud – and how audit can add value to providing this information
  • Explore control procedures and daily behaviors that prevent fraud
  • Discover exactly how to assist in fraud prevention – while honoring the audit standards of objectivity and independence.

The presenter is very effective and engaging. This course helps to better understand that auditors should not be viewed as a fault finder but should also work with their clients. The examples provided are great.

The instructor made the material interesting. He had great recommendations and his message was very true that usually auditors are more knowledgeable in fraud and fraud prevention, therefore auditors have a responsibility to assist management and make recommendation where possible.

Great instructor! He provided excellent descriptions and examples as he walks you through the "Action Wall to Prevent Fraud". Great tips on how Auditors can add value by providing this framework and how they can do so while maintaining their objectivity and independence.
