    Guidelines for Performing Fraud Risk Assessment and How to Conduct an Internal Fraud Investigation

    Course Objective: With an increased awareness of fraud and the ongoing cost to organizations, an entity wide fraud risk assessment is imperative to all organizations. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) “Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse” published in 2012, it predicted that 5% of an organization’s revenue is lost to fraud. Performing a fraud risk assessment is doable, and can provide internal audit and its organization peace of mind for having gone through the process. Once it is completed, it only requires an annual review for additions of possible new fraud schemes and results from internal audit anti-fraud projects conducted during the year. Internal Fraud investigations are stressful, no matter what the situation; someone has been accused of something that is against the internal code of conduct.
