Fraud and corruption affects us all. It's in the news every single day and at worst it is seen in some circles as necessary for business to operate.
Properly combating fraud and corruption is still an elusive goal. Time and again we see people and apparently well-managed organisations subjected to major embarrasment, financial penalities or even bankruptcy as the result of inappropriate actions and failings by 'trusted' individuals. This course requires that we learn to address the challenge; how we can ensure that we actively defend ourselves and our organisations against the very real threats we would rather not see?Aims and objectives
