This course aims to illustrate how forensic accounting by professionals enables identification and detection of fraud together with an understanding of the exploitation of processes by fraudsters. The use of the latest AI technology tools will also be discussed.

From “what could go wrong” to “what went wrong”, we will depict what were the possible internal control weaknesses leading to fraud and the possible prevention measures.

On completion of this course, participants would have:

  • An understanding of fraud, unethical behaviour and forensic accounting
  • Knowledge of procedures in fraud detection and litigation support
  • An overview of some key fraud indicators
  • Better understanding of internal control and regulatory requirements in Malaysia.
