Fraud plagues businesses at epidemic levels, and technology control failures are a major contributing factor. Using a case study approach, in this session, you will learn about the pervasiveness of fraud, the control failures that contribute to fraud, and what you can do to mitigate fraud risk. A specific focus of this course is the application of information technology general controls and information technology application controls. In this course, you will examine numerous reported fraud cases and identify the general control and application control failures that contributed to each fraud. By learning through these real-world case studies, you will be better positioned to reduce fraud risk.
