The Anti-Fraud Playbook

In order to effectively mitigate fraud risk, organisations need to go on the offensive. One approach is to implement an effective Fraud Risk Management (FRM) program, as outlined in the COSO Fraud Risk Management Guide. While the guide is very comprehensive, some organisations struggle figuring out where to start.

Grant Thornton has co-authored the Anti-Fraud Playbook with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), a practical roadmap for organizations looking to begin, advance, or benchmark their FRM programs against industry best practices.

Join us on Wednesday, 14th April for this webinar delivered by Roslyn Lee Symmons, Director in Forensic & Investigation Services & Mike Harris, Partner in Cyber Security Services at Grant Thornton where we will explore the Playbook and supplemental tools to help your organisation.
