E183v : The Art of Fraud Investigation (Live Webinar)

2.50 CPE Hours (Category 2)
Live Webinar

Programme Objective

If an internal investigation of a potential fraud is managed right, it will enhance your organization’s reputation, resolve internal problems before they become negative publicity, identify the bad actors, detect the lapses in internal controls and recover losses. Internal investigations are also a key component of an effective fraud risk management program.

This seminar we will examine a 5-phase approach investigating into potential frauds, from receiving the initial allegation to writing an effective investigation report. We will take a deep dive into several parts of an internal investigation including legal consideration in extracting information, leveraging data analytics in an investigation, admission-seeking interviewing techniques and writing reports.
