Most companies face financial risks due to fraud, possibly by not leveraging on technology to combat fraud. On the flip side, maintaining an effective audit function can help mitigate such risks.

Among the best measures that any company can take to mitigate the loss associated with fraud is to equip employees with skills and techniques needed for detection and prevention.
