When an organization thwarts a fraud tentative, one out of two is the outcome of an action or human initiative such as doubt or suspicion: far away from IT systems. Thus, the need to train ones personnel in the fight against fraud is easily comprehensible.
How to go about it: To each function level corresponds an appropriate training
- Engage top management
Training for top management will focalize on responsibilities; strategic, operational, economic, judicial, financial as well as reputational issues amongst others.
Objective: make them understand issues involved and the role they have to play. Without this level of consciousness, the efficiency of then training of employees against fraud will be severely damaged and the mobilization of the other partner levels in the fight risks being dwindled or random.
- Train employees to fight against fraud
For specialized services and functions, training has to be more specific and technical for persons at this level are in charge of defining and implementing the organization of antifraud devices within the company.
This could be in the form of a professional training; the most commonly knows worldwide being the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).
