Employee Theft and Fraud: Every Organization is at Risk

Duration 90 min 

Savvy CFOs, accounting and finance managers have taken measures to prevent large-scale fraud and embezzlement. But many organizations still remain dangerously exposed to less grandiose forms of employee theft.

Controls are in place to safeguard major assets and sensitive information, but the less spectacular misappropriations often “fly below the radar” so they are hard to detect and even harder to prevent.


As a result, organizations incur small losses (often from multiple perpetrators) over a long period of time … and the running total becomes significant. In fact, studies show that as much as 75% of employee theft never gets uncovered … and the 25% that is discovered takes place for an average of 18 months before detected.

This webinar will give you a blueprint for building a culture of awareness and prevention of employee theft and fraud. You’ll leave the webinar with a plan of attack for: assessing risk, aggressive prevention and deterrence, early detection, and effective handling of incidents that come to light.
