Why you need this practical reference guide
Preventing fraud is much more cost effective than punishing it, so having a plan in place to protect against the risk of fraud can save your business time, resources, and money.

Security in an insecure world
Current economic pressures are driving some individuals to commit dishonest acts in order to survive. Desperate times tend to spawn desperate acts. With companies facing bankruptcy, with individual jobs and careers at risk, and a seemingly relentless pressure on everyone to maintain or surpass performance levels, those seeking to prevent fraud must work not only to deter crime, but also to promote an ethical environment in the workplace.
The Handbook provides a comprehensive discussion of the many issues that face businesses today including case studies based on real-world fraud cases, a sector-by-sector discussion of key vulnerabilities and preventative controls.
The loose leaf version comes with a CD of time-saving checklists in Microsoft Word format.
Who the Fraud Handbook will help:
- Controllers and financial executives responsible for preventing fraud in their organizations
- Public accountants who provide audit accounting, or consulting to clients
- Entrepreneurs and owner-managers who need to know how they can be victimized and how to protect their business
- Government officers who must protect the taxpayer against fraud within their departments or ministries
Make sure that you and your staff have the timely information you need
It’s impossible to eliminate the risk of fraud completely. But effective prevention policies can reduce the opportunities for fraud to occur, and sophisticated detection capabilities can help uncover fraud at early stages, minimize losses and enable you to effectively respond to any problems that may occur. The Accountant’s Handbook of Fraud Prevention and Detection is an invaluable tool in your fight against fraud.
