Guernsey Association of Compliance officers

Governance, Risk and Compliance in the Bailiwick of Guernsey

Event - 28 June 2021


In 2021, it is no longer a case of “if” a business or client may be affected by fraud, but rather “when”.

The Anti-Fraud Playbook is a tool published by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners in conjunction with Grant Thornton. We will discuss why officeholders need to consider fraud risk and how the primary responsibility for the prevention and detection of fraud rests with those charged with governance of an entity, and its management.

They will then discuss the Phases and Plays of Fraud and Risk Management, including:-

1. Fraud Risk Governance;
2. Fraud Risk Assessment;
3. Fraud Control Activities;
4. Investigations and Corrective Action; and
5. Fraud Monitoring.
