Kenanga Fraud Awareness Week

Fraud Awareness Programme: Recognise It, Report It, & Stop It

Dates:  13 November 2017 - 17 November 2017
Accreditation: SIDC CPE-approved: 5 CPE points

Over the past decade, stories on fraud have been a regular feature in the papers and on TV, a long, discouraging parade of misdeeds and stories of how people commit these unethical crimes.  With the advent of technology, the numbers of fraud cases are on the rise and businesses are becoming more vulnerable to this risk.
Companies entrust employees with cash, checks, inventory, trade secrets and other valuable assets. While the majority of employees are honest, given the right circumstances, motivation and opportunity, even the most loyal employees may be tempted to commit fraud. What can companies do, if even loyal employees can be tempted to commit fraud under the right circumstances? How can fraud be prevented?  
This programme addresses these questions and creates awareness of recognising fraud activities through fun and interactive sessions, the importance of an ethical culture where employees are encouraged to prevent fraud through whistle blowing  and other preventive measures.

Programme Objective

This programme is structured as an interactive 3-step fraud awareness and prevention programme: (1) Recognise It (2) Report It and (3) Stop It. It is divided into 5 segments and is designed for employees of KENANGA to create awareness and give insights into the occurrence of fraud activities, its implications to the organisation and the capital market and the role of the organisation and staff in combating fraud and setting an ethical organisational culture. 

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this programme, participants will be able to:
  • identify the most common types of fraud, the main causes  and its modus operandi;
