Developing an Integrated Anti-Fraud, Compliance and Ethics Program
- Apr 25-27, 2023 10:00 a.m.
- Central Time (CT)
Tone at the top can set a precedent for an ethical corporate culture, but a formal ethics program establishes a clear framework for the organization’s expectations, policies and potential consequences. While compliance and ethics are the foundation of such programs, the pervasive threat of fraud makes it critical to also integrate fraud-focused initiatives into the program, including anti-fraud and whistleblower policies.
This seminar will explore the steps your organization needs to develop a program that will effectively foster ethical behavior, promote compliance and deter fraudulent activities by your employees. Attend and learn best practices for creating an effective compliance and ethics program that incorporates anti-fraud measures.
