55% of Canadian companies know they are victims of fraud and many more are unaware. Most frauds are committed by individuals
in a position of trust. Through specific examples of real fraud cases, you will learn how to recognize fraud and fraudsters. We will
help you understand fraud by introducing what motivates a person to commit it, the different kinds of fraud that exist (including
theft of time, money, and equipment / materials, collusion with vendors and falsifying financial reports), and how signs of fraud
present themselves. Further, we will walk through effective fraud prevention measures you can consider for your business. Having a
plan before fraud occurs and executing it quickly upon suspicions of fraud is paramount to a successful outcome. We will explain
the key elements of a fraud response plan to help you understand what you need to do if you spot red flags of fraud.
