About the course

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. It can also be committed by external sources through malware attacks, therefore having an understanding of this area is crucial for protecting your organisation.

This course 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. You'll be able to implement strategies for risk management and responding to financial crime, as well as how to protect your organisation's IT system.
