This 4-hour module will help auditors and those working in nonprofit organizations to identify and address the most common fraud and abuse schemes that are perpetrated against them. Using a case study format, participants will learn how these fraud schemes can be prevented and detected.

This course has been updated with a discussion on the important changes in the COSO Framework and COSO white papers on board governance and cyber fraud and statistics from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
