Fraud Prevention, Awareness and Training
All organizations are subject to fraud. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE)reports that approximately 5% of revenue is lost to fraud in organizations. The ability for an organization to prevent and detect fraud begins with fraud awareness and training—how fraud occurs, the characteristics of fraudsters, and how to respond when fraud is suspected – and identifying where an organization is susceptible to fraud through fraud risk assessments.
Verracy helps organizations design, develop, and implement effective Fraud Awareness and Training Programs. These programs are designed to foster an anti-fraud culture based on fraud deterrence, prevention, and detection, as well as ongoing training and awareness, including training and education for management and staff on fraud, waste, and abuse.
Verracy is a recognized world-class training provider that delivers pertinent, practical, and relevant skill development for professional organizations and global corporations around the world. See what courses we have available.
Fraud Risk Assessments
Do you have appropriate fraud governance activities and fraud risk identification processes? Does your organization know the most common types of fraud in your industry? Do you have internal controls to mitigate your key fraud risks? Assessing, improving, and monitoring anti-fraud programs are key elements of an effective internal control structure
Fraud risks and exposures are unique to each organization. To know the fraud risks your organization is susceptible to, a fraud risk assessment is needed. Understanding how to properly identify and assess potential fraud risks helps an organization develop and implement effective fraud programs that reduce the potential financial, reputational, and organizational risks associated with fraud. Our experienced Certified Fraud Examiners and seasoned fraud professionals can help you create, revisit or facilitate successful fraud risk assessments to identify the most significant risk areas so they can be better managed and mitigated.
