In this course, we are going to tackle a topic that doesn’t factor into many senior financial leader’s agendas all that often or until something happens, that is, fraud in the workplace. Occupational fraud is a large global industry. Organizations are losing an estimated 5% of revenues to employee fraud each year, according to the experts at the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners(ASFE). Does that statistic shock you? Are you in disbelief that the number could be so high? In this course, we are going to discuss how employees are doing it, how we can detect it, and most importantly, what can be done to prevent it in the first place. We will use the research of the ASFE to look at the fraud cases under investigation to reach a deeper understanding of this issue. You will be astounded, you may be surprised, but the goal of this course is to make you enlightened.
