Episode 31: Fraud Management
After last week’s informative podcast on the significance of internal controls, this week Alexander and Peter are back with their take on what to do once fraud has occurred within a company. While the first reaction might be to panic, Peter suggests that just the act of doing something – reporting the fraud to the authorities, trying to find a forensic accountant, notifying an attorney – is a fulfillment of your fiduciary duty as a leader, board member or owner of a nonprofit. And additionally, the true goal of fraud management, after all necessary internal controls are correctly established, is to find as much evidence of embezzlement as possible while simultaneously attempting to get ahead of the situation rather than turn to secrecy.
If you or someone you know has experienced fraud or is worried about fraud threatening the livelihood of any company, go ahead and hit that play button to find out how you can be informed, vigilant and as protected as possible.
