Online Course on Preventing Financial Crime
Financial crime can be committed by anyone in an organisation, who is motivated by some need or desire, prepared to rationalise their actions, and thinks they won’t get caught.
Preventing Financial Crime will enable you to understand the various types of financial crime and the controls that can be used to limit the opportunities for fraudsters to commit them. More importantly you will look at how to create the right culture within an organisation to not only discourage collusion in fraud but also to encourage reporting and disclosure.
