Fraud Awareness

Business Integrity


60 – 75 minutes


The cost fraud brings to an organisation is enormous and rising every year. A recent global study by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners found that in 2018 fraud resulted in over $9 billion in losses, with 22% of cases costing over $1 million. Fraud was not limited to large businesses: small businesses lost almost twice as much per scheme to fraud as businesses with over 100 employees. It is therefore crucial that all staff in all organisations know how to recognise fraud and who to report it to.
