Why Attend?

Accounting fraud is one of the worst types of fraud in the business world. Financial Frauds and White-Collar Crimes have been growing at an alarming pace as the fertility of man's invention in devising new scheme of fraud is never ending. The increasing number of White-Collar Crimes particularly in financial fraud activities which has hit 80% of Indian companies in past two years is creating new trend in White-Collar Crimes and has become a serious area of concern for all. At the same time the new business methods and the ERP applications which are making business dynamic are also making them vulnerable to Financial Frauds as the technology dependency through ERP application generates unrealistic expectations whereas ERP systems aren't set up to detect frauds and can be easily used to perpetrate and perpetuate frauds, unless it is properly structured, implemented and systematically monitored.

In the absence of meaningful controls, the present business and social environments create ideal scenario for the wrongdoers to exploit the weaknesses prevalent in the system, for their personal gains, based on inherent risk, wherein the wrongdoers can easily get away. At the same time frauds travel to grow exponentially over the period, if not detected on time. Therefore the prevention through meaningful controls and early detection by corporate professionals with right mind-set, professional expertise and proactive fraud risk management strategy could save fortunes for the establishments.

The Symposium is organized in order to give real insight of the crime to the delegates as to; what are the vulnerable areas, what are the lead indicators and red flags, what are the modus operandi of the crime, how to sniff out & investigate crime, how to create effective controls and how to build pro-active 'Anti-Fraud Strategy'.

This Symposium will move beyond the theory of audit and compliance programmes so as to give you practical guidance on fraud prevention, based on real-life examples.
