Alan Brown
09:3010:30· As forensic accountants, we recognise that businesses regardless of size or sector are susceptible to fraud. Our recent case studies highlight the risks faced by businesses from insider fraud, and show how in the majority of cases, the crime and subsequent losses were preventable.
· We will talk about the behavioural red flags and warning signs which may indicate an employee may be engaged in fraudulent activity.
· We will also discuss the practical measures to be taken in order to make systems and controls more robust, to ensure the opportunity for fraud is eliminated to prevent losses to businesses.
