Fraud Investigation for Audits
Conducting a fraud investigation can be a difficult task.
An investigation into employee wrongdoing can be expensive, time consuming and disruptive to organisational moral.
It can certainly lead to a number of legal issues and other unexpected complications if it is not conducted in an ethnical, transparent manner with the utmost care and confidentiality.
On the other hand, the well-run fraud investigation can enhance a company’s welfare, which can help detect and recover the source of lost assets, identify responsible culprits and recover losses.
It can also provide a solid defence to legal challenges raised by sacked or disgruntled employees.
But crucially, an internal investigation will signal to other employees that the organisation will not tolerate fraud.
The fraud course will guide you through every step of an internal investigation into potential fraud, from receiving the initial allegation to testifying as a witness.
In this course, you will learn how to lead a fraud investigation with accuracy and confidence by gaining knowledge about various topics, such as relevant legal aspects of fraud investigations, using computers in an investigation, collecting and analysing internal and external data, interviewing witnesses, suspects and writing investigation reports.
