ICA Advanced Certificate in Managing Fraud

Course level: Level 4 - Intermediate

According the latest PwC Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey, 47% of companies have experienced a fraud in the past 24 months with a total reported loss of US$42bn. Kristin Rivera, PwC Global Forensics Leader, has this to say “when it comes to preventing and tackling fraud, our research shows that a dollar invested now is worth twice as much when fraud.”
