Fraud, Forensic Audit and Investigations Training
Every organization faces the risk of financial loss due to fraud, but maintaining an effective audit function
can help mitigate that risk. Auditors, both external and internal, must have a thorough knowledge of Fraud, Forensic Audit and Investigations and prevention to effectively fulfill their mission. Additionally, one of the best measures that any
organization can take to mitigate the loss associated with fraud is to equip employees with the skills and
techniques needed to detect and prevent it. Maintaining an in-depth knowledge of fraud and how it can be
detected and prevented is essential to maintaining the financial integrity of any organization, large or small.
