Fraud

Public and Private organizations at all levels – federal, state or local – have the formidable task of managing important public or business policy issues and communicating those activities to many different stakeholders. This places direct implications on how targets are achieved and what administrative systems are in operation, thus providing an environment where transparency can thrive whilst fraud, corruption and economic crime can be detected at an early stage.

There seems to be no end to list of corporate giants crippled or demolished by fraud. Every day we hear of the demise of banks, financial institutions, established companies and businesses due to fraud or dubious employee practices or pure investment fraud. Many of these instances could have been prevented or negated through good governance practice. There is a crisis and despite the size of some of these organizations there is a particular need for well informed anti-fraud leadership. Many larger enterprises can take the hit of a fraud and carry on their business but smaller businesses can and end up closing down with creditors on their tail and staff jobs lost.

Of course when these frauds are identified the investigation starts but fraud prevention and fraud investigation are a two pronged approach to good fraud management for all businesses.
