The list of contributors to the Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime (Cambridge, UK, 2nd to 9th September 2012) is a rollcall of world leaders in law enforcement; names such as Cyrus Vance, Ros Wright, Masayuki Yoshida, Professor Fletcher Baldwin … the list is endless. There are several Gower authors contributing too: Professor Mike Levi, Dr Shima Keene and Mark Johnson. This is a heavy-weight event that runs over a week and tackles all of the hot-button issues: money laundering, state and corporate corruption, compliance, technology, identity and privacy. Mike Levi is contributor to Fraud: the Counter Fraud Practitioner’s Handbook; Shima Keene is author of Threat Finance: Disconnecting the Lifeline of Organised Crime and Terrorism and Mark Johnson is author of the forthcoming titles: Demystifying Communications Risk: A Guide to Revenue Risk Management in the Communications Sector and Cyber Crime, Security and Digital Intelligence: Vulnerabilities, Risks, Threat Actors and Controls in the Information Age.
I came across a list of misconceptions about fraud in Mike Comer’s seminal 1998 book Corporate Fraud. Right up there at the top of the list were the two misconceptions that (a) the police detect fraud and (b) regulators prevent fraud. 14 years after this book was published, the current LIBOR scandal and the latest pharmaceutical industry scandal seem to suggest that these misconceptions are as current as when the book first highlighted them. Interestingly, the fourth misconception in his list was ‘Catastrophic frauds are rare’. Once again, Mike was bang on the money! Mike Comer is author of a number of Gower titles on fraud.
Sadly not a school for producing lots of little Terry Thomas look alikes (for those with fond memories of classic British cinema) but, actually from a business perspective, something even better; an intense two-day training and development event facilitated by three of today’s most able and most experienced anti-fraud specialists: Alan McDonagh, Nigel Iyer and Veronica Morino, between them responsible for a great collection of practical fraud books: Fraud and Corruption, A Short Guide to Fraud Risk, and The Anatomy of Fraud and Corruption.
David Hillson shows how two simple extensions to the standard risk process can bridge the gap between tactics and strategy, ensuring that risk management delivers benefits to the wider organisation. This free Webinar was recorded for the PMI International Development Community of Practice (PMI ID CoP) in March 2012.
