Anti-Fraud Collaboration Webcast
How Corporate Culture Can Breed Fraud if Left Unchecked
Corporate culture is the foundation on which a company’s governance framework rests, and if the culture is weak or there is poor tone from the top, the likelihood of financial reporting fraud increases. Our goal with this program is to communicate the importance of corporate culture and how it impacts governance, risk, and compliance.
Based on their own experiences, panelists will describe actual cases where the corporate culture could have been the root cause of a material fraud, explain how that situation evolved, and how the company dug itself out from under (if it did!). The panelists will also provide actionable recommendations for what management, boards and audit committees, and internal auditors can do today to help combat the obstacles and barriers to sound corporate culture. They will discuss ways to establish and monitor a strong response program that includes ramifications for those who violate corporate ethics policies, and leading practices for continual reinforcement of the importance of ethical behavior in a large organization.
We encourage all of the key players in the financial reporting supply chain – audit committee members, financial executives, internal auditors, and external auditors – to register for this informative program.
This program is free of charge and eligible for 1.5 CPE credits.
