Preventing, Detecting and Responding to Fraud & Misconduct

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

About

Are you fully prepared to prevent, detect and respond to fraud at your organization?

With enforcement efforts against corporate fraud increasing, the threat of potential criminal liability to general counsel, internal auditors, directors and officers and even the corporation itself has never been greater. Considering the number of high-visibility fraud cases over the past few years, public and private companies alike need to be increasingly vigilant to ensure their anti-fraud controls are strong enough to prevent fraud by insiders, and flexible enough to manage the damage when fraud does occur.

American Conference Institute's Fraud Risk Management publication will provide you with the strategies and practical advice you need to avoid misrepresentations on financial statements, decline in investor confidence, harm to employee motivation and loss of clients-ultimately the bottom line.

Publication materials submitted by industry leaders, in-house counsel and experienced professionals will lead you to the solutions you need on:

  • Determining when to bring in outside counsel when responding to fraud and misconduct
  • Training to develop anti-fraud skills in your employees
  • Managing whistleblowers who engage in misconduct
  • Setting up a fraud response plan
  • Working around privacy constraints in a foreign subsidiary investigation
