Let’s Talk About Fraud

Organizations lose an average of 5% of revenue to fraud each year. Yet how many of those companies have a line item for fraud losses in their budgets? It is time to take a clear look at what fraud really is, how to prevent it where possible, to detect it quickly if it does happen, and to try to make sure it doesn’t happen again. We look at current fraud cases to learn how fraud happens, what the red flags are, and what we can learn for our organizations. Then we look at how we can create or improve our control environment using risk control frameworks. Throughout our discussion, we look at how ethics is the most potent antidote to fraud.
