Why Should You Attend:

This webinar will discuss:

Types of acts. Specific types of acts are more easily concealed than others. Learn which acts are more successful within different industries.
Keeping it a secret. Secrecy is an essential component of fraud. How to keep a secret over a long period.
Risks created. Situations created fraudulently expose a company to risks that involve the company, its investors and lenders and other stakeholders. These situations arise without expectation or preparation. The list will surprise you.
Gains lost. Senior management benefitting from fraud often makes decisions that benefit their personal interests than the company's.

Aspects and beliefs generally associated with business fraud. What we hear about and what we don't hear about. The unspoken realities of this back door industry.

How they often get started. What motivates a business owner or top senior executive to steal from their company? It's not always greed.
What types of fraud are most prevalent and how to mitigate the risk.

Topic Background:

Company owners and majority shareholders are in a unique position of being in control of all facets and all decisions of their company. Company owners do not defraud their own companies, they use their companies to defraud others. Those "others" can be a varied list including those who can prosecute them. Techniques and schemes vary by industry and are rarely, if ever, reported in the media. Secrecy dominates. These closely held companies employ the majority of the labor force. Their fraudulent acts cause significant risks and opportunity denials that this webinar will focus on. Several industry sectors will be discussed.
