Fraud Awareness Training Courses
Detailing exactly what constitutes fraud and what the motivations behind fraud could be, our forty-five minute long Fraud Awareness online training course is designed to help employees spot the signs of fraud, and also how to investigate and report suspected cases of fraud. This information is particularly useful for your business's fraud awareness programme, since most organisational fraud is detected following tips and whistleblowing from fellow employees.

Why is Fraud Training so important?
Part of the reason why fraud can go undetected and unreported for lengths of time is the fact that it can occur in so many different forms. Usually, though, fraud will fall into three categories: asset misappropriation (stealing or misusing company resources and/or cash), financial statement fraud (misrepresenting information on company financial reports), and corruption (using one's own or the company's influence for personal benefit).
Everyone in the organisation should be made aware about these different types of fraud and what the red flags are for each.
Effective fraud awareness training is critical when it comes to the prevention and detection of fraud in the workplace. Whilst it's true that no-one likes to think their employees or colleagues are capable of committing a fraud offence, ensuring that a proper anti-fraud training plan is put in place is far easier and more effective than trying to recover losses after fraud has taken place. Remember, prevention is key when it comes to corporate fraud.
The cost of Corporate Fraud in the UK last year is estimated to be an astonishing £193 billion.
Private sector fraud accounted for the vast majority of this, losing £144 billion across SME's and large enterprises alike. The major types of fraud that this included were: Procurement, including false invoicing and contracts awarded in exchange for bribes (also see our Anti-bribery and Corruption courses), Payroll, Mortgage Lending and Insurance.
The public sector is far from being averse to fraud, losing some £37 billion in 2016 through tax fraud (£15 million), accounting fraud and an ill-afforded £2.5 billion worth of fraud in the NHS.
What is Fraud Awareness training?
Fraud awareness training educates members of staff about the threat of fraud and the ways in which it can damage organisations. This sort of training will typically provide examples of different sorts of fraud (e.g. bribery, false accounting, insurance fraud, and so on) and discuss how to identify them and the specific warning signs and prevention methods for each. Fraud awareness requires everyone in the organisation to remain vigilant against fraudulent practices and is an ongoing process that will often involve refresher training and reinforcement.
