Event description

Description

Fraud surveys have demonstrated that charities are as at risk to fraud as any other organisation and in the age of cybercrime the risks are only increasing. Every pound lost to fraud is a pound that does not reach your charity’s beneficiaries. There are practical things you can and should be doing to keep fraud losses to a minimum.

Through a mix of discussion, interactive exercises and case studies, this training course will help understand fraud risk and give you practical tips on how to develop a fraud awareness culture and strong counter-fraud controls in your charity.
