How to Incorporate Data Analytics to Improve Your Ability to Detect Corruption in Your Organization CPE = 2
It comes as no surprise that the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners fraud surveys over the past 10 years identify corruption as the most frequently occurring fraud scheme.
Corruption has come under great focus in the last decade with enhanced enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act but has been a concept dating back to the start of business. What has changed are the tools and more precisely, analytics, which can be used to detect bribery and other corruption schemes.
Specific learning objectives include:
- Explore the top internal and external data sources to interrogate for corruption schemes.
- Be able to identify the key red flags leading to corrupt behavior and how they present themselves in data.
- Learn to bolster any compliance program with data-driven prediction and decision making analytics.
