Introduction to Organizational Fraud Detection
Every organization faces the risk of financial loss due to fraud, but maintaining an effective audit function can help mitigate that risk. Auditors, both external and internal, must have a thorough knowledge of fraud detection and prevention to effectively fulfill their mission. Additionally, one of the best measures that any organization can take to mitigate the loss associated with fraud is to equip employees with the skills and techniques needed to detect and prevent it. Maintaining an in-depth knowledge of fraud and how it can be detected and prevented is essential to maintaining the financial integrity of any organization, large or small.
