Regulators worldwide are cracking down on failure of any kind in internal governance and checks and protocols, which requires companies to ensure that their employees are acting responsibly and transparently. In turn, companies have adopted zero-tolerance for fraud and employees have been made partners in the fight against fraud. Because the level and type of fraud varies from company to company, it's important that employees understand what fraud is and how it could arise in their organization. What this means for employees is that they are responsible for not only avoiding engaging in fraud themselves, but also preventing and reporting it. This course explores fraud and offers ways employees can prepare themselves to avoid, prevent, and report incidences of fraudulent activity where they suspect it has or may occur.
