A Short Guide to Fraud Risk: Fraud Resistance and Detection

A Short Guide to Fraud Risk is for:

  • anyone who needs to better understand fraud risks, either company-wide, or in a specific business unit;
  • directors and managers who would like to add value by building fraud resistance into their organization and to demonstrate to shareholders, regulators or other stakeholders that they are managing fraud risks, rather than just reacting to incidents;
  • regulators, auditors and compliance professionals who need to assess the effectiveness of an organisation's fraud prevention measures.

The book gives a concise but thorough introduction to the risk of fraud based on a six-element strategy. It includes practical steps to assess and treat fraud risks across an organisation, including those relating to executive directors. It also provides practical steps to develop fraud awareness across an organisation and how to implement an effective fraud detection and incident management program. The application of the principles is illustrated with example documents and numerous case studies aimed at assisting the reader to implement either individual elements or a complete fraud risk management strategy.
