Venue: Lagos and Virtual

Employee fraud is a significant problem faced by organizations of all types, sizes, locations, and industries. According to the 2014 Report to the Nation on Occupational Fraud and Abuse research shows that the typical organization loses 5% of its annual revenue each year due to employee fraud. Prevention and detection are crucial to reducing this loss. Every organization should have a plan in place as preventing fraud is much easier than recovering your losses after a fraud has been committed

With key personnel attending this course, your organization will benefit in the following ways:

  • Increased efficiency in fraud detection will result in increased revenue potential by avoiding the damaging after-effects of corporate fraud
  • Improvement in crisis management by creating a resource pool equipped for fighting fraud in an emergency thus minimizing its negative repercussions.
  • Improved procedures for fraud detection and prevention will lead to greater emphasis on quality accounting standards and overall business processes.
  • Better-quality forensic auditing and accounting practices/standards will result in a boost of stakeholders’ confidence; especially investors in the case of corporations and the general public in the case of governmental bodies.
  • Centralized process will also result in uniformity of fraud intelligence data which is generally gathered and analysed from various data points and business departments. Since the nature of fraud is continuously evolving, only an updated and centralized process can tackle the latest threats.
  • Creation of an ethically viable long-term strategy and direction towards the accomplishment of organizational goals leading to long term sustainable growth.
