)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Corporate Fraud Detection, Remedy, and Prevention Techniques: How to Defend Your Company in 2015 Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on March 3, 2015 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET.
Most companies face greatly increased risks of being a victim of fraud in today global and computer-oriented business milieu. Considering the high cost of fraud, in revenue, time, and legal cost, losses of opportunity, etc. it is surprising how few companies are protected from and prepared for fraud. It is imperative that companies develop and implement fraud prevention strategies to prevent, detect, and address business fraud. Strong fraud prevention policies assure investors, regulators, auditors and the general public that the company is protected.
The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners estimates that fraud and related abuse cause the equivalent of five percent of gross revenues in losses. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, businesses suffer an average of $155,000 per fraud incident and increasing yearly. Billing fraud schemes are the most common, comprising almost one-third of the total.
To defend against fraud, one must be educated about how fraud schemes are perpetrated, who does them, what and how much is stolen, recognizing non-traditional fraud schemes, what prevention schemes can be enacted; among others. Based upon studies done by several organizations including the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO), the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), and large CPA firms, the top ten fraud schemes include corruption, Ponzi and asset flip schemes.
In this two hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will review and discuss Corporate Fraud Detection, Remedy, and Prevention Techniques.
