Did you know that fraud is the most frequently occurring crime in the UK? It’s not just a minor issue either – fraud costs the UK billions of pounds every year. In fact, according to the 2017 Annual Fraud Indicator, the total cost of fraud losses to the UK is estimated at a staggering £190 billion per year! The private sector is hit the hardest, losing around £140 billion, while the public sector may be losing more than £40 billion and individuals around £7 billion. These figures highlight the urgent need for individuals and organisations to understand the risks of fraud and take appropriate measures to prevent and respond to it.
The “Fraud Awareness and Prevention Training” course provides a comprehensive theoretical understanding of the key principles of fraud investigation, prevention, and response. The course consists of six modules that cover a range of topics, from becoming a fraud investigator to UK laws and legislation regarding fraud.
The course starts with a focus on the role of a fraud investigator, exploring the skills and attributes required to effectively investigate fraudulent activity. After that, there is a primer on risk management and how to identify potential fraud risks, while a sole module covers the key principles of fraud prevention.
There is also a module which delves into the techniques used to detect fraud and find evidence, while another module talks about the investigation and response process once fraud has been identified. Finally, the last module provides an overview of UK laws and legislation regarding fraud.
This course is ideal for anyone who wants to gain a theoretical understanding of fraud investigation, prevention, and response, including professionals who work in roles where fraud may be a risk. It provides essential knowledge that can help individuals and organisations prevent and respond to fraudulent activity, reducing the impact of fraud and protecting their interests.
