Seminar Description:  All successful business Fraud Risk Management efforts address three levels of attack: Prevention, Quick Detection and Effective Incident Response. We’ll kick off this full-day workshop program with a six-step prevention framework. Then we’ll work through a proven three-step fraud detection plan that can be applied by anyone in any entity or industry. We’ll round out the day with a discussion of what to do and what to avoid once wrongdoing, theft and fraud are suspected or known. Throughout the day we’ll use real-world cases and exposures as the basis for extensive participant brainstorming and discussion.

Come prepared to discuss your questions, ideas and action suggestions on business Fraud Risk. And leave with your own tailored action list to step up your game in 2024 and beyond.
