Every organisation is at risk to the threat of fraud and financial crime, whether that be internal, external or through a form of collusion. The National Fraud Authority state that the true cost of UK based fraud is £30bn annually and the Public Sector alone is accountable for 58% of this figure.

This comprehensive one day programme provides delegates with a fuller understanding of the fraudulent threats to their organisation and their corporate objectives, from fraud, theft, corruption and other ‘irregularities’. We help delegates explore their awareness of the mechanisms by which their organisation can help prevent these risks from arising, detect the risks at the earliest opportunity where they do exist, and mitigate against their impact on the organisation.

Research in the field of information asset management indicates that information or data users often fail to comprehend the level of negative impact that a loss of sensitive, or high value information has on organisations or individuals.

This programme is designed to provide participants with the knowledge, skills and contextual understanding necessary to fulfil the role of Information Asset Officer in an efficient, effective and professional manner.

A failure to investigate an incident effectively, or in an unprofessional manner, can have extremely costly and far-reaching consequences for Government Departments, Business Organisations and Professional Service Providers alike. Research proves that a simple failure to professionally investigate a complaint, incident or accident; or to identify a breach in the security system can lead to the continued loss of valuable product or processing capability, or worse, loss of external confidence and professional image. Failures end up in Court and may be broadcast by the media with all of the subsequent reputational damage that media speculation brings.

The effective and timely identification, measurement, mitigation and management of Risk has become one of the most important governance issues for organisations. This is even more important for organisations that have a high public visibility in terms of their role and function.

The proposed program considers Risk from a 'practical application' perspective; it is light on academic theory but heavy on strategic and operational application. The delivery style is discursive and interactive using focused scenarios to enhance applicability. To this end the facilitator will gladly sign a non-disclosure agreement that will allow focused discussion which will enhance engagement and learning.

The course draws on the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS ISO 31000-2009 Risk Management - Principles and Guidelines (previously AS/NZS 4360) and it is particularly valuable for organizations wishing to bring senior individuals together to focus on the key business management risk issues.

This TWO DAY course examines the creation of a risk assessment and management system, and draws on the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS ISO 31000-2009 Risk Management - Principles and Guidelines (previously AS/NZS 4360).

The framework for the course is a detailed examination of a methodology for examining many different types of management risk, and the workshops to illustrate these various technical topics. The single framework simplifies the technical areas (e.g. finance, environment, health & safety, information control), and assists with corporate governance requirements, including auditing and business continuity.

Corporate Governance requirements require that Directors and others are aware of the risks of their organization, and manage these accordingly. This consistent risk-based framework assists in these legal obligations.

A number of checklists and forms are included which enable those not familiar with the topic to immediately try out the techniques in their own organization.
