Training Materials

As research conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) shows (see the table titled "Median Loss Based on Presence of Anti-Fraud Controls" on our statistics page), proper anti-fraud training of management and staff can cut fraud losses in half. The term "training" is very broad and includes formal courses, videos, presentations, posters, handouts and other resources—such as this website—that makes employees more aware of fraud, how its conducted and how to prevent it. This page contains links and materials to help fight fraud.
