Business fraud is a problem that can affect every organization. Whether you are a for profit or nonprofit organization, the business owner, investor, controller, CFO, manager, financial statement preparer or auditor or a member of the governing board, fraud is serious business and its effects can be devastating—possibly catastrophic.
This year’s edition is a fast moving seminar that will provide a comprehensive look at fraud from the technical, legal, and operational perspectives and update participants on the most recent legal and regulatory developments in this important area of professional responsibility. Particular attention will be directed to "best practices" in implementing SAS 99 and ways management can limit opportunities to commit fraud by establishing and monitoring appropriate fraud prevention and detection controls.
Our panel of experts will address the unique internal control problems of smaller organizations with limited staff and resources and the important legal and ethical considerations that can adversely impact professionals who are unprepared.
In addition, this year’s program will address techniques for conducting inquiries of management, and others within the organization, “brainstorming” and other techniques, responsibilities of the governing board and common types of fraud. Learn and master new skills to carry out your professional, legal and ethical responsibilities to make reasonable efforts to discover fraud.
Finally, learn to identify and prevent common types of fraud and the steps every accountant, financial manager, and governing board member can and should take to protect assets and financial statements from fraud.
