This month’s lecture for Chapter Members
This month’s lecture is FINANCIAL FRAUD – THE CLIENT’S PERSPECTIVE for two CPE credits.
What exactly does best practice, as defined by the ACFE and by other professional organizations, currently call upon management to do internally, externally and investigatively when confronted with the suspicion and then the reality of a financial fraud? The last few iterations of the ACFE’s Report to the Nation have made it clear that the means of detection of financial fraud have been vastly improved. Corporate cultures have changed in ways that encourage resistance among lower-level employees to potentially improper accounting and that encourage escalation when it is discovered.
CFEs need to know about this rapidly evolving investigative environment as viewed from the prospective of their clients to be better informed about what the corporate ground ideally ought to be before they enter it at the request of the client’s corporate counsel or of its audit committee. Enjoy!
