There are two main ways that a company can protect itself against fraud: putting preventive measures in place and having a comprehensive fraud detection programme. This course gives you everything you need to know about fraud detection, including practical tips you can put into practice at your place of work, regardless of your specific industry.
Fundamental Concepts Fraud
While fraud is a common crime, the fundamental concepts behind it are less understood. This is to the detriment of many organisations, as the existence of fraud can be incredibly destructive. This course goes over the important elements you need to know about fraud to stay safe, including the categories of fraud, the points at which fraud is likely to occur, and what to do if you suspect it is happening at your company.
Another unethical and illegal business practice that is unfortunately common is bribery. While there are legal consequences for those engaged in this practice, they can only work if others in the business world understand the rules and policies relating to this crime. This course reviews global anti-bribery practices and legislation in detail, giving you the tools you need to spot warning signs and continue running an ethical company.
HMT Sanctions List
UK companies are prohibited from doing business with countries, individuals, and organisations contained on the HMT Sanctions List. However, compliance with the legislation behind the list can only be done if you are fully informed of its contents. This course goes over the Sanctions List in detail, explaining why those bans are in place and what the consequences are if you violate those terms.
Human Element of Fraud
Organisations can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more, on fraud detection and prevention. However, one of the most successful strategies is also the least expensive: examining the human element. This course reviews the possible motives for fraud, while also talking about how to identify fraudulent activity by paying close attention to human behaviour.
Identity theft is a shockingly common crime – one that can impact you years after the fact. Not only can it destroy your credit, becoming a victim can even make it harder to land your dream job or get an amazing apartment. Understanding the steps you should take to protect yourself as well as the signs that may mean you have been victimised are just two of the key topics covered by this course.
Proceeds of Crime and Terrorism
The UK has developed multiple pieces of legislation designed to fight terrorism and money laundering. All companies, regardless of industry, have specific reporting rules that must be followed. Learn how to comply with the Proceeds of Crime Act and the Terrorism Act while protecting your company from unethical practices by taking this in-depth course.
