FORENSIC AUDIT SEMINAR – NYANZA BRANCH
DATE: 12th – 13th OCTOBER 2017

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. External and internal auditors must have a thorough knowledge of fraud detection, prevention and mitigation tools to effectively fulfill their mission. 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.
