Seminar Description: Effective fraud risk management requires an integrated approach. This seminar brings together key principles and practices using the 2016 updated COSO1 fraud risk management framework. The course material includes case discussions, sample codes of conduct, fraud policies, fraud risk checklists and other practical materials to help participants build a corporate culture and framework that prevents and detects fraudulent activity.

This seminar provides “real life” examples of fraud and examples based on instructor and participant experiences. It explains why we need to manage fraud. It then provides an integrated approach, describing the five key COSO principles of fraud risk management as outlined below.
Seminar Outline:
  • Why do we need to manage fraud risks
  • COSO framework for Fraud Risk Management
  • Principle 1: Governance - creating an ethical environment: discussion about codes of conduct, fraud policies, hotlines, ethics training, employee declarations, and other practices.
  • Principle 2: Comprehensive fraud risk assessment: fraud indicators and red flags, and a series of fraud risk assessment cases for class discussion.
  • Principle 3: Preventive and detective fraud control activities: a high-level overview of potential controls.
  • Principle 4: Fraud investigation protocol: high-level overview of how to properly react to fraud, investigation considerations, taking corrective action and fidelity insurance matters.
  • Principle 5: Fraud risk management monitoring: Ongoing evaluation and timely communication, with an introduction to data analytics.
Who Will Benefit: Members in industry who require knowledge of historical and current frauds, possible fraud indicators in their transaction streams, and how to develop an integrated approach for effective fraud risk management. Members in public practice may also benefit as participants will learn to recognize indicators of potential fraud which can assist in the conduct of an effective audit.
