Self-Study Course Details
Strong internal controls are a good part of the fraud prevention framework any organization creates for the purposes of thwarting crooks. However, there are many places these controls fall down, and often they are in places where you least expect them. This is especially important when it comes to the accounts payable function. For control breakdowns in this area allow crooks easy access to the organization’s financial assets. This course takes a look at control breakdowns that are sometimes unintentionally ignored to the peril of the organization not addressing them. The issues evaluated in this course are critical to those who want to run an efficient, fraud-resistant accounts payable function.
- Pinpoint the reasons internal controls fail and address them
- Identify the control problems in the payment process
- Spot the control problems in the AP process
- Detect common control issues around personnel
