Banking organizations are increasingly threatened by employee fraud. In fact, employee fraud represents the majority of all fraud threats to a banking organization.

Embezzlement, kickbacks, check fraud, financial statement fraud and vendor billing schemes are just a few of the countless economic crimes committed by employees and outsiders. And with the march of technology, new computer and Internet-driven schemes are being deployed by dishonest insiders all the time.

This webinar will provide attendees with a strong foundation of practical knowledge about how common frauds are committed, how to detect the red flags of these crimes and how to eliminate control deficiencies that provide opportunities for dishonest employees.

This timely, two hour CPE training event is designed for the internal auditor, compliance professional and others who wish to improve their tradecraft skills within fraud protection and detection.

Each attendee will receive 2 CPE Hours (YB). A certificate of completion will be provided.

Anti-fraud internal controls and training can help banking employees defend the bank.

Fraud is an ongoing problem for businesses, and criminals are using increasingly sophisticated methods to perpetrate these crimes. Data shows that the banking industry is the most targeted industry in the world. Criminals are targeting banking organizations of all sizes, and small banks are particularly vulnerable.

Awareness, controls and employee training are key to protection from bank fraud.

While smaller bank organizations may not have the budget to invest in external training, they can still effectively create internal controls and train their employees to spot and prevent fraud.
