Yet execution of holistic fraud risk assessments can often be a very difficult task. Re-imagining the art and science of auditing and fraud detection is coming to the forefront of risk management functions.  What was seen as a “nice to have” a few years ago has become a “must have” as digital transformation and data surrounds all aspects of the organization.
