Executives are under enormous pressure to meet stakeholder expectations regarding the prevention of fraud and corruption. However, the drive to demonstrate that they are complying with legislative requirements and high principles has, in many cases, overshadowed the need to deal with the problem itself.
As a result, fraud and corruption remain a significant unmanaged source of risk for many organizations. Drawing on experiences across Europe, America and Australia, Iyer and Samociuk give you the tools to establish an effective and far-reaching anti-fraud and corruption programme.
Included is a compendium of techniques for assessing the true risk of fraud and corruption, reducing those risks and using health checks to provide early warnings. Also included is The Tightrope, A Story of Fraud and Corruption... which takes the reader from first suspicions through crisis and finally recovery in a vivid and instructive style, covering the lessons in the main text.
This new book is a must-read for all those responsible for the prevention of fraud and corruption, risk management, corporate compliance, corporate responsibility and governance.
