In this course we tackle a topic that doesn’t factor into many senior financial leader’s agendas all that often or until something happens: fraud in the workplace.

Occupational fraud is a giant global industry.  Organizations are losing an estimated 5% of revenues to employee fraud each year according to the experts at the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).  Does that statistic shock you? Are you in disbelief that the number could be so high?  In this course, we discuss how employees are doing it, how we can detect it, and most importantly, what can be done to prevent it in the first place.

Using the research of the ACFE to look at the fraud cases under investigation, we will reach a deeper understanding of this issue.  You will be astounded, you may be surprised, but the goal of this course is to make you enlightened.

The presentation was very upbeat - the background song accentuated the seriousness of fraudulent activities. It was surprising to hear how costly internal fraud schemes can be to organizations. I enjoyed the course and welcome the opportunity to explore the topic in more details. It was shocking to learn that petty theft could be classified as fraud as well.

The Course was effectively designed to highlight core areas along with corroborating statistics. However practical case studies, either one or two, if discussed in detail then give the practical insights for further action.
