THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(established under the Accountants Act, Laws of Kenya)
THE ANNUAL FORENSIC AUDIT CONFERENCE
23rd – 25th OCTOBER 2019
SAROVA WHITESANDS BEACH HOTEL AND SPA, MOMBASA
Theme: Combating Fraud in The Digital Age
According to the PricewaterhouseCoopers Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey 2018, 75pc of Kenyan managers have experienced fraud in the last 2 years. Economic crime continues to be a dominant item on the business agenda, and no industry sector, region or size of business is immune. Fighting fraud has progressed from being an operational or legal matter to a central business issue.
The corporate environment in Kenya is tackling a wide range of issues; pervasive technology, escalating expenditure, procurement irregularities, weak revenue streams, increased demand for value and weak governance. This state is worsened by fraud and corruption, which causes financial losses, reputational damage and erosion of employee morale. These have been occasioned by advancements in technology and rapid improvement in skill sets and creativity of perpetrators. As a result, greater challenges are faced in responding to and curtailing fraud. It is against this backdrop that ICPAK has organized the Conference to focus on:
- Using Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence to Combat Fraud
- Technology and Vulnerability to Cyber Attacks: Mitigation Measures
- Understanding the Changing Face in Financial Statement Fraud
- Forensic Investigations in a Digital Environment
- Millennials and Fraud: Current Trends
- Litigation Processes and Procedures
- Responding to Fraud: The Complete Cycle
- Businesses Creating Shared Value
