Detecting and preventing Fraud – Key findings and insights from PwC’s

With over one-third of Australian companies being hit by a fraud in the past two years, detecting and preventing fraud is a key pillar in any risk management frameworks. Too often organisations review their risk management framework after an incident where the cost to remediation was high (millions), time consuming and impacting brand and reputation. 

In this session, Patrick Millwood from PwC Australia and Charles from Whispli will discuss the following:

  • Key findings from the Economic Crime & Fraud Survey for Australian organisations
  • Practical steps and strategies to reinforce detection and prevention mechanism
  • Emerging risks to consider when reviewing your Risk & Fraud Management framework
  • Direct benefits of a proactive approach in comparison to a reactive approach
