The most successful forensic accountancy is that which prevents fraud from occurring in the first place. As is the case with all types of crime across the board, fraud prevention is always the preferable option. Forensic accountants are trained to identify the various signs and indications of possible fraudulent activity, in order to investigate and bring cases to the required resolutions. However, it is better for all involved if it is made difficult or impossible for financial crimes to be committed. This preventative approach to fraud can save any organisation time, money and perhaps even damage to its reputation. Nevertheless, it is a rare competency only the most outstanding forensic accountants are able to master.
This targeted tutorial has been designed for anyone looking to take their fraud prevention knowledge and skills to the next level. Study a range of key concepts and sub-topics, including financial crime prevention strategies, financial goals, policies and procedures, surveillance, perception of detection, working with anonymous tips, the role of surprise audits, enforcement of ethics, fraud response teams, prosecution and more.
