Continuing Education: NASBA Certified

Out of all the unique and interesting things we get to do day-in and day-out, our passion is education. We want to teach organizations how to prevent fraud, detect fraud early, and, in the event fraud still occurs, have plans and policies in place that allow them to recover quickly.

We are excited to announce that we are designing and producing our own courses. Not only are these courses beneficial to anyone seeking knowledge regarding anti-fraud measures, they are officially NASBA certified.

CPAs and CFEs can now earn CEUs towards their certifications through our courses.

Our first course is live and ready for purchase and participation.

Perception of Detection: Speaking to the Mind of the Perpetrator

1.5 CPE Credits in Specialized Knowledge

This course examines and explains the thought process of fraud perpetrators using the model of the fraud triangle. Much of today's internal controls to defend against fraud simply address specific opportunities potential perpetrators can manipulate or work around to commit fraud. This course shifts the approach of fraud prevention to focus on the mind of the perpetrator; fraud prevention should begin with interrupting the very thought process that leads a person to commit internal fraud. Discover a 5 Step approach that can raise the Perception of Detection and deter internal fraud.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Define elements and significance of internal fraud in relation to the Fraud Triangle

  • Describe how raising the Perception of Detection is effective at speaking to the thought process in the mind of a potential perpetrator

  • List 5 steps to raise the Perception of Detection in the workplace

  • Give examples within each step that can be modified and practiced in the participant's specific workplace
