Within the recent past many large organizations, banks and small businesses have become victims of the scourge of document and cheque fraud, wire frauds and various types of business frauds. These frauds have resulted in the loss of funds from tens of thousands to multi-million dollars losses. With continual digitization of financial records and transactions, fraud prevention and detection is set to be more challenging. More than usual, auditors need to be alert for situations, control weaknesses, inadequacies in record keeping, errors and unusual transactions or results which could be indicative of fraud, improper or unlawful expenditure, unauthorized operations, waste, inefficiency or lack of probity.
With this in mind, ICPAK has organized this inaugural conference to address:
- Detection and prevention of fraud (includes business fraud, wire transfer fraud, document & cheque fraud)
- Professional audit standards dealing with fraud detection, including the recent executive order requiring more recovery audits
- Internal controls and fraud risks
- The fundamental processes and principles involved in court cases involving fraud
- The risk of social networks
- Analytic technique for detecting fraud (includes interviewing techniques, Forensic Documentation Examination and Handwriting Identification)
- Legislation on fraud in Kenya and other East African countries
- Fraud investigations; expectations from law enforcers
- Personal excellence; sharpening the axe
Business owners, managers, supervisors, banking & insurance personnel, auditors, accounting personnel, risk personnel, investigators, law enforcement personnel and other managers responsible for detecting, investigating and preventing fraud.
