Instructor for this course

This is segment two in our “Test your Fraud IQ” series.  The course is designed to provide the learner a different experience.  Rather than focusing solely on the technical aspects of why fraud occurs and concepts of the fraud triangle, we utilize real-life case study scenarios to evaluate aspects of fraud culture and cyber fraud.

Most professionals have some understanding of the impact fraud can have on today’s businesses.  Professionals in the financial or audit fields are familiar with the concepts of the fraud triangle and elements of fraud red flags. Many courses exist that speak to fraud concepts such as the profile of a fraudster, fraud red flags and fraud mitigation factors.  This instructor has developed a Fraud Certification program on Illumeo that covers many of these concepts in depth.

This course includes multiple real-life fraud scenarios and poses questions to the learner about “what would you do”.  In this course we specifically focus on fraud culture and cyber fraud.

  • Discover how to analyze gaps in your fraud culture.

Good examples of real world fraud scenarios with a focus on fraud culture and cyber fraud. Helps us understand what we should do under certain fraud situations. Good explanation of gaps in fraud culture, how to identify & analyze those gaps, and ultimately mitigate them.

This course is a little odd combining the discussion around intro to fraud culture and mixing it with cyber risk. I get the connection between the two but they are better addressed individually in this type of course.

Good course. The course could be expanded to look at the culture in other countries in comparison to the required corporate culture and how to deal with the higher inherent risk of operating in high CPI countries.

Another great course for distance learning on the topic of fraud awareness and response strategies. Well-paced and well organized with interaction possibilities.

I preferred part one of these lectures. I found it to be a little long winded over issues that didn't seem to matter to the overall objective of the course.
