Building a Fraud-Resistant Organization

The Anti-Fraud Collaboration held this webcast on January 8, 2015 to discuss its new report, The Fraud-Resistant Organization: Tools, Traits, and Techniques to Deter and Detect Financial Reporting Fraud.

Drawing on a wealth of research, The Fraud-Resistant Organization provides valuable information about the conditions that might make an organization more susceptible to fraud—and how to mitigate those conditions. The report identifies three central themes that are critical to fraud deterrence and detection—strong “tone at the top,” skepticism, and robust communications—and explains how financial supply chain participants can incorporate these important traits into their efforts and their organizations.

In this webcast, panelists share their insights into how successful organizations establish and reinforce an ethical tone at the top, the exercise of skepticism, and robust communications in an effort to mitigate the risks of financial reporting fraud. The panelists also address some of the challenges that multinational companies face in executing effective fraud deterrence and detection programs.
