About this Course
Fraud, or the use of deception to dishonestly acquire a personal gain, is a global problem affecting economies, businesses and individuals. Bribery, corruption, identity fraud, counterfeit goods, are all examples of fraudulent activities. Fraud is a particularly serious threat to the financial services industry – and it’s on the rise. It is a major threat to our society and a serious concern to all institutions in the country and the world as a whole. Fraud can affect and even cripple the economic growth of a country. In this regard, creating fraud awareness and teaching the mechanisms on how to prevent it can significantly eradicate corruption, and is therefore vital for the ongoing success of any organization and for the economic growth of Sierra Leone. Fraud has led to major loss of income within organizations whereby the very people who were entrusted to protect its assets and resources have constituted the attacks against the organization. Anti-Fraud Professionals know just how devastating a fraud can be to its victims and the society. Corruption also presents one of the most significant fraud risks for organisations in many industries. Participants will become more fraud-aware and will be equipped with the necessary skills to detect fraud within their organisations and environments. Participants will learn how to effectively mitigate fraud using practical case study examples on fraud issues drawn from global studies and reviews.
