Fraud and cybercrime are becoming more much frequent crimes and can significantly affect the well-being of every charity. This means that it is increasingly important for trustees and managers to understand common fraud risks and how to prevent them.
This practical half-day workshop will explain what you need to know about fraud and why.
This session will cover:
- The cyber-fraud and financial crime landscape.
- Identifying and assessing the key areas of internal and external fraud risk.
- Understanding your responsibilities in safeguarding your charity’s funds.
- Hallmarks of an effective approach to protecting your charity from fraud.
