Event Description


“Finding and Fighting Fraud – A 24 Hour Responsibility” - Fraud is prevalent in today’s dynamic, global environment. The ACFE’s 2014 “Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse” asserted that “survey participants estimated that the typical organization loses 5% of revenues each year to fraud… Regardless of whether the true cost is 5% or some other portion of the global economy, the total financial impact of fraud surely amounts to hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars each year - an enormous sum lost to an expense that provides absolutely no business or societal benefit.” Fraud is the great equalizer – it knows no boundaries ---age, gender, race, religion, vocation, geographic location.
