Course Description

Every person alive rationalizes their own behavior. Potential fraudsters rationalize why committing internal fraud is right for them. Experts have observed the motivations of rationalization shift dramatically because of the pandemic environment. To deal with this, the organizations need to ensure internal control systems are covering sufficient areas and provide reasonable assurance of security.

As you navigate this strategic change, you may need to update, or even transform, your internal control structure to align with new processes, mitigate risk, and promote an efficient and effective workplace. With a focus on internal controls, this webinar will share guidance to help you update your internal control structure for long-term success in a remote landscape.

  • The rationalization of fraudsters before COVID
  • The new mindset of rationalization found during COVID
  • The change in the workplace environment and its effects on employees
  • Best practices to address the new mindset of COVID rationalization
  • New and updated policies to deter internal fraud

About Company

Dawson Forensic Group

www.dawsonforensicgroup.com

Dawson Forensic Group was founded by our president Steve Dawson CPA, CFE upon his retirement from a distinguished 26 year career as a partner in one of the nations top 400 public accounting firms, serving as a financial statement auditor, forensic examiner, and nationally-recognized public speaker/trainer.  

As a certified public accountant (CPA) and a certified fraud examiner (CFE), Mr. Dawson recognized the need for a single-purposed company devoted to fraud prevention, detection, and education.  As a result, he established Dawson Forensic Group to combat small business fraud through forensic auditing, litigation support, accounting records reconstruction, internal control design consulting, and anti-fraud training services.  

The company has continued to expand in staff and levels of service due to the increasing need for small businesses to accomplish the necessary goals of establishing sound internal controls and developing effective anti-fraud programs
