CFO Series: Detecting Internal Fraud – The Devil You Know

Description

Two-thirds of small businesses will experience some form of employee fraud according to the Better Business Bureau. About 30% of business failures result from employee fraud. Current estimates indicate businesses lose 5% of their revenues to occupational fraud, and small businesses incur higher median losses when fraud occurs. Many businesses don’t have adequate controls in place to prevent and detect fraud, often because of time, staff, or financial constraints. This session will discuss common frauds and fraudsters, and how to identify realistic ways for businesses to take steps to prevent becoming the next victim.
