Assessing your Anti-Fraud Program

The fraud landscape is constantly changing due to the sophisticated technology, increased skillsets and expanding knowledge fraudsters use. Many organizations have anti-fraud programs, but are those programs robust enough to keep up with the everchanging fraud landscape? Have the programs been assessed or evaluated to ensure they are doing everything they were designed to do to prevent and detect fraud? This course will discuss the key components of an anti-fraud program, what is included in each component and how to evaluate your anti-fraud program for its effectiveness.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Recognize why an anti-fraud program is important and who should own it
  • Determine what components make up an effective comprehensive anti-fraud program
  • Assess, evaluate and monitor your anti-fraud program’s effectiveness


Investigation Guidelines: A Practical Tool for Investigators

Investigation guidelines that are well written can ensure that your organizational policies and procedures are followed and promote consistency within your investigation program or across your organization. This session will discuss how having a standardized investigative process can reduce risk, how to create investigation guidelines that are an asset to investigators and how to audit them to ensure that they are effective.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Recognize why having investigation guidelines is important
  • Recall elements that should be included in investigation guidelines
