How can we deter internal fraud more effectively? Many internal controls currently attempt to stop the actions of potential fraudsters. But Steve Dawson, CPA, CFE, explores the importance of interrupting the very thought process of a perpetrator.
This online CPE Fraud webinar for CPAs examines and explains the thought process of fraud perpetrators using the model of the fraud triangle. Much of today's internal controls to defend against fraud simply address specific opportunities potential perpetrators can manipulate or work around to commit fraud. This course shifts the approach of fraud prevention to focus on the mind of the perpetrator; fraud prevention should begin with interrupting the very thought process that leads a person to commit internal fraud. Discover a 5 Step approach that can raise the Perception of Detection and deter internal fraud.

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
