Fraud Risk Management

Fraud and financial misconduct are an undeniable reality of the modern globalized business landscape. The average U.S. organization incurs an estimated 5 per cent loss to its annual revenue due to frauds. As a result, businesses are increasingly interested in fraud risk assessment and management to help protect the bottom line. Furthermore, regulators are increasingly demanding more active, global management of fraud risk.

In the wake of high-profile corporate scandals, and with new stringent laws and regulations, business executives are increasingly pushing for organization-wide policies, programs, and controls to address fraud and misconduct.

By leveraging our knowledge and in-house expertise of the fraud risk facing today’s enterprises, we can assist our clients with identifying the business areas prone or vulnerable to fraud and misconduct. We can also help clients assess and prioritize their fraud risks and attach meaningful anti-fraud actions that can help mitigate risks and enable effective and consistent fraud prevention.

What is a fraud investigation?

Fraud investigation basically refers to the process of examining whether the scam or fraud has taken place and collecting evidence to save the interest of victims involved.

For a better understanding of fraud investigation, let us understand what fraud is. Fraud can be defined as misinterpretation or misappropriation of things with an intent to deceive people. For example, if certain companies make some claims about features of their product and the product does not work in a similar way, then it is a fraud with its consumers. Fraud can make people lose their money, causes injury or it can even lead to their death. Fraud investigation can be both internal and external to find the real culprit behind the act of fraud.
 

Some common type of frauds that usually occur in a company!

Both people making false insurance claims to the insurance company and insurance company being reluctant to honor the genuine insurance claim is counted under insurance fraud.
  • Corporate fraud :Corporate fraud is an elaborate term that includes many things. It involves a breach of data security, theft of information from the company, theft or compromise of customer’s information from the company’s database or any other kind of damage in the reputation of the company.
