"Prevention is better than Cure", as the saying goes and this is even more relevant with fraud and corruption. Fraud is costly and disruptive and has consequences on brand and business value. An effective anti-fraud program is money well spent.
The five important elements of an effective anti-fraud program are:
1) Anti-Fraud and Anti-corruption policies
2) A sound Code of Conduct/Ethics (including Conflict of Interest and Gift declarations)
3) Fraud Risk Assessment process or Fraud vulnerability review
4) Fraud Hotline reporting mechanism
5) Fraud sensitisation training to key employees, incorporating items 1 to 4 above
