Session #4: Forensics and Fraud - How to Prevent, Detect and Respond

Are you concerned with criminal activity in your business? Do you want to know how you can prevent it from happening? 

If you are a manufacturer, distributor or part of the logistics community you are likely a part of a complex supply chain of raw materials, procurement, and inventory/fleet management and tracking. The various transactions that occur in a supply chain can leave a business very susceptible to corporate crime. 

The session will cover how businesses can prevent, detect and respond to fraud. Discussing:
•   Logistics Fraud
•   Employee Fraud
•   Various Case Studies
•   Types of Internal Controls

We will explore various situations that leave a company vulnerable to illegal activity and provide some suggestions on managing and mitigating risk to prevent financial loss, reputational damage and damaged business relationships. We will provide views from the perspective of a forensic accountant and from a lawyer, both with extensive experience in fraud recovery and investigations.
