Deterring Financial Fraud: What Else Can Be Done? (2.0 Ethics CPE)

September 26, 2018

These days, most people understand the importance of the “tone at the top” and realize that a company’s financial reporting environment and culture can act as a strong deterrent to fraudulent financial reporting. But beyond the right “tone,” what else can be done? What additional steps can be taken to deter fraud or, if fraud should get a foothold, to stop it in its tracks? Identifying these additional steps is a tough challenge, but an analysis of prior SEC enforcement releases yields clues about fraud deterrence and detection that go right to the mechanics of a company’s system of internal control over financial reporting. In this CPE course, listen to a panel of experts discuss lessons learned from those SEC enforcement actions, and provide concrete, action-oriented steps that governance professionals can take.
