Fraud Awareness and Prevention Course
Background to the Course
This course is an advanced analysis of fraud prevention approaches and methodologies that applies medium and larger-sized enterprise.
The course is designed for staff in entry and mid-level roles within a business management, government administration or similar function with a range of internal and external stakeholders and where there is a potential for fraud to occur. It aims to provide attendees with skills that will aid them to develop, review and/or implement fraud prevention and risk planning techniques and to better detect fraud and contextualise potential fraud. Detection and prevention policies and procedures and action plans are applied to staff with a vertical or horizontal movement in roles within a business environment.
The course reviews fraud and its detection and prevention planning from an implementation perspective and provides ample opportunity to apply a range of sample templates and plans that will assist participants in reviewing or developing enterprise or department-level fraud prevention plans such as the risk management plan, fraud detection plan, fraud stakeholder management plan, and other elements of the fraud prevention implementation process. The course is applicable to private enterprise, government departments and the not for profit sector.
The course is targeted at staff dealing with a range of internal and/or external stakeholders affected by potential fraud and detection plans such as employees, managers and senior managers, funders and regulators in a corporate setting.
