Economic Crime and Forensic Auditing
More than ever before organisations are now finding themselves faced with increased economic crime leading to huge but unavoidable losses.
In situations where auditors are ill prepared recovery is a challenge. Moreover the criminals appear to be a step ahead of the auditors. With
managers who are well equipped and who have a nose for detecting and preventing the crimes the losses can be avoided if not minimized. This
coupled with auditors who are equipped with the relevant knowledge and skills will go along in the minimization of the crimes.
