Fraud Risk Consulting

Develop

The most cost effective way to deal with fraud is to deter it.  However, certain deterrence strategies are more effective than others, and not all of them may be right for your organization.  Your structure, culture and industry significantly influence your fraud risks and are the building blocks for the development of a deterrence strategy. Through observations, analysis and interviews, we work closely with you to help identify your specific fraud risks. We combine this with our fraud investigative experience to develop a comprehensive deterrence strategy; one crafted to uniquely fit your organization.

Implement

The effectiveness of any deterrence strategy can be undermined by poor implementation. Education of and communication with your employees on the importance of your deterrence strategy are paramount. We can assist your organization in this process by providing fraud awareness training tied to your deterrence strategy and customized to specific groups within your organization. 

Enforce

Our experience has shown that a policy not enforced will not be followed. The continued enforcement of your deterrence policies can help to ensure its continued effectiveness. Through unannounced investigations, we can help determine in real time if your employees are adhering to the policies of your deterrence strategy. This process will continue to reinforce the importance of your deterrence strategy and identify modifications that may become necessary as your business evolves.
