Fraud Prevention

Fraud prevention: Identifying fraudulent activity and responding accordingly

Company surveys repeatedly reveal many organisations have fallen victim to fraud. New tactics, such as 'CEO-Fraud', continue to put companies and their employees to the test. While there may be hundreds of attempts made, unfortunately a proportion of these will be successful. However, by having increased awareness and knowledge, as well as putting preventive measures in place, you will be able to prevent instances of fraud, and protect both your business and your employees.

As part of our e-learning programme, you will learn how to recognise and prevent fraudulent activity via a series of interactive lessons. You will become familiar with the different types of people who may attempt scams, identify motives for crime and receive tips to guide your actions in daily life. The lesson 'Fraud through identity theft' exclusively covers the subject 'CEO-Fraud'.

Contents of the fraud prevention e-learning programme

The tutorial consists of a number of self-contained lessons. You can pick and choose any combination of lessons depending on whether you want to use the standard product or would like more options. Click here to learn more about 'lessons' and 'lesson types'.
