Despite tougher legislation and vociferous rhetoric around the world, little seems to have changed in the world of corporate fraud and corruption. Reports of major frauds and bribery scandals are as prevalent as they were twenty years ago, although, if anything, they are far more damaging to the reputation and value of the organizations that are involved. Fraud and corruption remain a significant unmanaged source of risk for many organizations. Drawing on examples from the UK, America, Scandinavia and Australia, the authors provide a compendium of techniques for assessing the true risk of fraud and corruption within your organization and for reducing those risks; procedures for identifying suspect behaviours and transactions; a process for health checking for fraud, and practical guidance for establishing an effective anti-fraud and corruption programme throughout your organisation. Included with the book is a fictionalized case study, The Tightrope, which maps out the anatomy of fraud and corruption from first suspicions to crisis and recovery. The Tightrope provides a vivid and instructive presentation of the lessons covered in the main text.
"Fraud and Corruption" is a must-read for all those concerned with the prevention of fraud and corruption, risk management, corporate compliance, social responsibility and governance.
