Course Description

One of the main reasons CPAs and other accountants often fail to detect fraud is that they are too honest. They find it difficult to think like a criminal. This course is designed for individuals who would like to refresh their understanding of fraud schemes and to learn how to recognize the red flags for detecting fraud. Understanding how criminals commit fraud is the first step in preventing fraud.

We are susceptible to fraud on a continual basis. In this online CPD course you will learn the motivation and rationale that fraudsters use to justify their actions. This understanding is a critical component in predicting and recognizing fraudulent behavior.

In a 2018 PwC survey, 49% of 7,228 organizations reported that they had experienced economic crime and fraud in the prior year—up from 30% of organizations in a 2009 survey—and that more than half the perpetrators were “internal actors.”

The topic of fraud —whether it relates to awareness and prevention techniques, fraud auditing, recent fraud in corporate, or the criminal mind is continually on the radar of investors, shareholders, and regulators. Yet execution of holistic fraud risk assessments can often be a very difficult task.

Once you understand the fraudster rationale, your next step in prevention is situational awareness, or being aware of and taking responsibility for your physical well-being and security. This compelling CPE session will focus attention on the dynamics behind what makes a fraudster tick and how to use that knowledge to recognize fraudulent behavior.

You will also learn how the root cause of the problem isn’t always about ineffective regulations and compliance systems; sometimes the flaw is at the end of the corporate culture and leadership. By creating a culture that encourages employees to act ethically and legally, leaders can minimize the likelihood that a scandal will hit their company and increase its ability to bounce back from any illicit actions that do occur. To set the right tone, leaders have to model high standards in both their professional and personal lives.
