Are You Well-Equipped To Fight Against Employee Fraud?

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Singapore, April 17, 2009 In the wake of today’s financial meltdown, organisations are looking more closely at their operations, and it is very likely that more employee fraud cases will be exposed.

 As seen from the Satyam and Madoff scandals which shook the entire business world, the repercussions resulting from employee fraud extends beyond just financial damage. Organisations will suffer from substantial internal impact and unquantifiable damage to reputation.

 To equip organisations with the requisite knowledge and tools in the fight against fraud, Pacific Conferences is organising a 2-day Conference on Employee Fraud Prevention and Management from 9-10 July 2009 in Singapore. Speakers from Canon, Siemens, Deloitte Forensic, Ernst & Young, Allen & Gledhill, International Risk, ATMD Bird & Bird, World-Check, Control Risks Screening, and Watson, Farley & Williams, will be going through critical issues such as risk mitigation, fraud investigation, anti-money laundering, fraud response plans etc.

 We have witnessed many fraud-related scandals in Asia and around the globe recently. This calls for more effective responses, both proactive and reactive, to counter employee fraud,” said conference speaker Anthony Hsu, Vice President of International Risk.

 Anthony will be touching on the recent developments of employee fraud in Asia, areas that are most susceptible to employee fraud, and essential business controls that will aid in the fight against fraud.  

 Urging organisations to attend this conference, Kenny Mok, VP of Compliance Office from Siemens, said, This conference will provide some solid material relating to fraud prevention as well as practical enhancements to internal compliance and governance processes in order to prevent or mitigate fraud risks. It will also be an excellent forum for benchmarking practices and networking.

 Kenny will be sharing the compliance programmes undertaken by Siemens, and how it rolled out an anti-corruption-implementation kit which integrates anti-fraud controls into key business processes.

 A conference not to be missed, this rare gathering will congregate a panel of renowned lawyers, consultants and practitioners. Sign up now and find out how to develop a long term anti-fraud strategy and be updated with the latest fraud prevention tools!
