Summary
All organizations, regardless of size, must be aware of the risks associated with intentional fraudulent acts. Fraud activities can be executed from within an organization, by parties outside an entity, or by both. One of the primary ways to thwart fraud is to understand how and why it occurs. In this session, we delve into the reasons that both internal and external intentional defalcations take place.
