Educational Programme

Why have the programme?

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 new business methods and the ERP applications which are making business dynamic are also making them vulnerable to Financial Frauds. At the same time technology dependency through ERP application generates unrealistic expectations, as ERP systems aren't set up to detect frauds, whereas Computer Systems can be easily used to perpetrate frauds unless it is properly structured, implemented and monitored.

In the absence of right controls the present business 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 tend 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 pro-active fraud risk management strategy could save fortunes for the establishments.

How the methodology would help?

Symposium is organised in this direction to give real insight of the crime, 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

  • How to build pro-active 'Fraud Risk Management Strategy'


Symposium is largely based on case studies sniffed out, investigated and prosecuted by the speakers themselves and would provide practical approach to control the growing menace.
