Course Objective:

The role of internal audit has changed a great deal over the last few years. 

Some estimates suggest that fraud or corruption reduces the turnover of the average organisation by up to 5%. Alongside organisational theft, your firewall or financial systems might be under attack from cyber criminals. The increase in computer processing and online transactions bring new risks to which auditors need to be able to respond. 

Expertise in identifying high-risk areas and the skills to combat these kinds of fraud are more important than ever. Combating crime of this kind as an auditor also requires expertise in gathering information, investigations, interviewing, analysis, record-keeping and document management. 

Where police forces do not have the time or skills to undertake investigations of this nature, the chances of a successful investigation or recovering losses are slim unless you have the forensic skills to undertake this investigation yourself. This practical course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to undertake and lead forensic auditing and be an anti-fraud champion in your organisation.

Using case studies and interactive exercises, this course will be your road map through the major fraud concerns facing organisations today. You will cover investigative principles, forensic auditing and rules of evidence and sentencing guideline
