Course Description

No one wants to think about fraud occurring in their business, but did you know that the latest research shows that businesses with fewer than 100 employees suffered the highest median loss... to the tune of $150,000. Moreover, the median duration of fraud - the typical time between when a fraud begins and when it is detected - is 14 months.

Doesn’t sound good, does it? Small businesses feel the impact of a loss of this size much more than larger organizations. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way. Join us for a discussion on proper controls that accounting firms can put in place for their clients or you can put into place today to protect your business.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify common fraud schemes

  • Recognize processes that may be susceptible to fraud

  • Determine controls to guard against fraud
