Fraud

All organizations are open to fraud risks. Fraud — and the lack of fraud detection, mitigation, and recovery plans ― have led to loss of revenue, reputation, and consumer confidence. CAEs must be vigilant in putting processes and policies in place to address every level of potential fraud, including internal and external risks, and ethical responsibilities. In this video, CAEs discuss how they expect internal audit will address the ethical use of data in the future, especially in the areas of privacy and training.
