Fraud Prevention Survey
Present studies released by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners indicate that as much as 8% of your top line revenue may be lost due to internal / occupational fraud.
We invite you to take our survey evaluating the 10 key components critical to reducing your organization's fraud risk.
|1. Our organization's culture, including the tone at the top, is as strong as it can be with respect to zero-tolerance toward fraud.|
|2. Our organization performs an annual fraud risk assessment including inherent fraud risk, likelihood and significance of fraud and risk response. |
|3. Detection of fraud and misconduct and recommendations for improvements to internal controls to prevent fraud are part of our organization's internal or external audit process.|
|4. A documented Code of Conduct has been implemented for all employees, which clearly states which actions are permitted or prohibited, as well as where to report inappropriate activity.|
|5. Proactive steps are taken on an annual basis to assess our risks and improve our internal controls related to potential fraud for decentralized operations, including overseas offices.|
|6. Policies and procedures, including re-engineering processes, to significantly reduce the risk of fraud have been implemented|
|7. An anonymous hotline open to employees, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders to report inappropriate activity has been well publicized.|
|8. All reports of suspicions or inappropriate activity are investigated, and action taken when infractions are discovered.|
|9. Company employees involved in financial transactions have had criminal and financial background checks and also assessed to be competent for the position.|
|10. Our company has taken aggressive steps to protect company data, employee information, and banking transactions from cyberfraud.|
