If you are a business owner, chances are you have been a victim of fraud.  Business fraud is even more prevalent during economic downturns, due to lower compensations of staff and weaker financial controls due to staff reductions.

Most business owners suspect fraud in their business, but do not take the necessary steps until it is too late. Fraud will not only result in financial losses, but may also contribute to bankruptcy and other legal consequences.

This session covers real life examples of how fraud was detected and how it was successfully handled.  It covers common areas of fraud, ways to detect fraud and most importantly, how to avoid fraud in the future.

This is a must attend briefing for business owners or investors.
