Detection and prevention of fraud is one of the most important requirements to run a successful business. So is responding to fraud once it is discovered. Unfortunately the nature of fraud is such that detection is sometimes very difficult, making prevention even more important. This session aims to create awareness of fraud within the workplace and how we can work towards reducing the impact through proper controls and preventative measures. It also looks at responding to fraud once it has been identified. It is important that not only those charged with governance and management are aware of the impact of fraud, but also employees, in order for them to be able to identify fraud and report it.
