Detecting & Responding to Fraud

Instructor: Scott Langlinais, CPA
 
At least one percent of every organization's top line is lost to fraud, and companies so often fail to
implement mechanisms for detecting problems early. Other organizations do detect problems, but
mishandle the investigation, resulting in costly counter-litigation and failure to identify all of the
perpetrators. These issues can land your organization on the front page of The Wall Street Journal for
the wrong reasons.
 
Detecting & Responding to Fraud offers the knowledge and skills necessary to reduce losses in your
organization and respond to fraud professionally. The practical methods we teach provide solutions for
addressing difficult issues, and we reinforce key learning points through case studies and practical group
exercises. You will see frauds and solve problems as we encounter them in the field.
 
Who Should Attend: Auditors, finance personnel, and investigators, who possess the unique ability to
defend against fraud, protect their leaders from surprises, and help keep their organizations and clients
away from unwelcome media attention.

  •  Overcome mindsets that prevent us from properly addressing fraud;
