TOPIC:  Fraught with fraud – red flags and corporate governance

Fraud is like a virus that all businesses carry, and if left undetected, can fester and ultimately bring your business down.  Robust safeguards can slow fraud down, but cannot offer immunity, since fraudsters will adapt their behaviour to get what they want.

Early detection and knowing how to respond to fraud can be the difference between saving your business and total collapse.  In this interactive session Simmons & Simmons and Control Risks look at the most common frauds used, and through a series of case studies, help you identify red flags, learn how to read them, and plan what to do once fraud is detected.  We also look at examples of fraud in the People’s Republic of China, tracing of assets, and how to approach fraud investigations.
