Fraud, including internal payroll fraud and external cybercrime, costs charities £2.3 billion per year. As well as the obvious financial impact, there are reputational, regulatory and staff management implications to address. Charities must take swift and decisive action in response to suspected fraud. Charity trustees also have a duty to ensure that they are taking appropriate steps to safeguard assets against the risk of fraud.
In this three hour masterclass you will put yourself in the shoes of the board of trustees and senior management (including HR) and learn what steps you should take to investigate suspected fraud or financial impropriety, minimise the risk of further loss, preserve the evidence, deal with employees who may be involved and report to your regulator and law enforcement agencies, as well as prevent fraud from recurring.
This workshop will cover:
