Title: Fraud Risk Assessment - Key Concepts

Speaker: Syed M. Raza, MBA, CIA, CFE, CAMS, CRCMP

Description Fraud Risk Assessment is a key aspect of Fraud Risk Management at any organization. Successful Risk Assessment process begins with sound planning, forming partnership with key stakeholders (internal and external). Risk Assessment should also consider current and emerging risks. Over all approach to Fraud Risk Assessment is more of an investment in safety and soundness of the organization rather than a completing a checklist exercise. An organization's ability to recover any misappropriated assets and relationship with law enforcement  are also part of the Risk Assessment process and helps organization in quantifying any possible fraud exposures.
