We have noted throughout the years that it is often very difficult to obtain reliable data on the amount of money lost through business and occupational fraud during each year.  Nevertheless, it is widely acknowledged that losses arising from fraudulent activities are increasing rapidly.  Therefore, we consider that it is primarily the duty of directors & management of an organization to safeguard assets of the organization and this duty is accomplished through risk assessment & by establishing an appropriate system of internal control procedures.  This seminar looks closely at who commits fraud & losses due to fraud with particular emphasis on risk assessment and internal control procedures, including a special session on controls related to information technology and an overview of the internal audit function. Finally, the seminar provides an overview of the measures & steps that need to be taken in the event of fraud being suspected or detected with an overview of the anti-fraud policies to be implemented.

Price : $300
