Join ACCA and a panel of experts for a free 60-minute webinar on 16 June as we explore the fraud landscape and what you should do if you come across fraud during an internal audit.
We will hear from speakers from three different organisations:
CIFAS (the UK’s fraud prevention service) Sophie Keen is the business engagement manager at CIFAS which involves helping organisations from both the private and public sectors to see the benefits gained from data sharing to combat both customer and internal fraud. Before taking on this role, she was the manager of the Internal Fraud Database, focusing on insider threats and working with organisations across all sectors to help combat these.
By examining the cases of internal fraud filed with CIFAS in the last year, Sophie will give an overview of what threats are on the increase and what steps can be taken to help counter these.
NHS Protect (which leads on work to safeguard NHS staff and resources from crime) Nicole McLaughlin is the area anti-fraud specialist for the South East of England and provides advice, guidance and direction in matters relating to counter fraud arrangements within NHS health bodies, particularly to local counter fraud specialists (LCFS) and directors of finance (DOF). Main elements of this work are: developing and promoting an anti-fraud culture, supporting deterrence work, prevention detection, supporting LCFS in their conducting of investigations, promoting the application of a full range of sanctions and promoting the pursuit of redress.
Nicole will be talking about how NHS Protect deals with fraud within the NHS.
Grant Thornton (specialists in managing investigations and delivering practical fraud risk management solutions) Tim Foster-Key is a director at Grant Thornton’s Business Risk Services practice. He has a wide variety of experience in both IT audit and risk based assignment. His client base covers large corporate through to public sector and not for profit organisations. His technology and accounting background gives him the ability to provide practical solutions, such as through the use of data analytics to identify trends or exceptions that help identify process and control weaknesses.
Tim will discuss the issues and subsequent approach used to follow through an audit delivery when data analytics are used as part of your internal audit approach and data issues that have been identified that may suggest weak processes/controls or potential fraud.
A Q&A session at the end of the session will allow listeners to participate.
