Managing Fraud Risk for Directors

Understand the role of the board in fraud prevention and detection.

Fraud is a risk to the profits and reputation of all organisations - and it is a risk that is increasing in current economic conditions. This interactive one-day course focuses on the role of the board of directors in fraud prevention and detection.


  • Enable directors to discharge their duties around corporate fraud
  • Raise awareness of internal and external fraud threats and the prime indicators of risk
  • Gain a better understanding of the key anti-fraud prevention and detection controls 
  • Consider the modern financial crime threat landscape and the dangers of bribery and corruption
  • Discuss and learn from recent fraud cases


The course examines occupational fraud and the main threats from cybercrime - as well as discussing recent cases and the lessons that can be learned - and provides practical tips for mitigating fraud risk. It is highly topical and very relevant to directors, given the likely changes to corporate reporting with a new requirement for directors to report on the actions they have taken to prevent and detect fraud.
