The aims and objectives of the course are to demystify fraud and corruption (what it is, who does it and why, what it costs us).
This course will also explore how to bridge the gap between anti-fraud and corruption and 'rhetoric' and the reality of the world we live in; how to spot fraud, and develop your own fraud and corruption risk assessment which represents a true picture of what could be happening (in your organisation) and demonstrate in practical steps what you can do to pre-empt and prevent fraud, corruption and all forms of unethical business behaviour in your organisation.
This course has been developed in collaboration with experienced fraud and corruption experts and practitioners from Hibis.
Most organisations have their fair share of fraud and corruption, and it affects all of us. As we know, what comes out in the press is the sharp tip of the iceberg. So, in these austere times, can we really accept to carry hidden costs and lose value through unethical behaviour perpetrated against us? We have decided to take a stand and teach what most business schools still do not teach... defence against the commercial dark side.
Properly combating fraud and corruption is still an elusive goal. Time and again we see people and apparently well-managed organisations subjected to major embarrassment, financial penalties or even bankruptcy as the result of inappropriate actions and failings by 'trusted' individuals. This course will help you to learn how to address the challenge; how you can ensure that you actively defend yourself and your organisation against the very real threats we would rather not see?
