Fraud First-Responder Training - London
Location: Woburn House, 20 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HQEvent Description:
Tuesday 2nd April
Universities come in many shapes and sizes, and in different universities the responsibility for tackling and responding to fraud rests with different people and at different levels. Many universities have a fraud response plan, and most universities will rely on auditors or other fully-trained and accredited investigation professionals to undertake counter-fraud investigations in accordance with legislation, or to respond to an act of whistleblowing, once a significant fraud or corrupt action has been identified.
But there are many staff at universities who could encounter a potential fraud at its early stages, and who need to know what to do in order to respond to a hunch, or if they receive a report of potentially suspicious activity. How do they know how to investigate, how deep they’re allowed to dig, and when they're at risk of crossing the line between exploring suspicions and investigation?
This course is aimed at all those in institutions whose role means they may receive suspicions of potential frauds, as well as at university counter-fraud champions and institutional ‘first-responders’. It's a hands-on, one-day course that will provide you with the knowledge and framework to respond appropriately to fraud alerts and reports, and to make the right decisions in accordance with your university’s policies. You will be asked to bring along your university’s policies and response plans on the day and you will be able to test these against real-life HE scenarios and case-studies, visualising in advance how you might respond, as well as understand if changes need to be made to your institutional approach.
The course will also include sections on reporting channels, confidentiality and communication, and handling evidence.
The course will run from 10am until 4pm, with registration and refreshments from 9.30am.
Lunch and all refreshments are included in the £170 delegate fee.
