Fraud & Cybercrime Training Background at GAC

Fraud and cybercrime are all-time news in Kenya, Africa, and indeed the entire world today. We are all facing an unprecedented high level of fraud and cybercrime that is costing individuals, private companies, and public institutions millions of dollars or in Kenya, billions of shillings every single day. The schemes used by the criminals keep changing as technology evolves making it difficult for government institutions, businesses organizations, and individuals to detect, prevent, stop the crimes or even prosecute them in courts of law. It is a real financial tragedy for public and private businesses in modern times.

This exceptionally unique course is a purely practical and real-life case packed program that cuts deep into fraud and cybercrime schemes used by criminals in executing fraud and other cybercrimes in modern times. The content is deliberately organized to explore real-life cases throughout the course as opposed to the usual theoretical pieces of training. We will deeply examine, discuss, and analyze fraud schemes executed outside and through digital-based business processes across different industry segments from a case-based approach.

We will be not only simulating fraud and cybercrimes but also examining real-life cases and explaining how and why they happened.

Whatever you do at your organization, this is a course you would not want to miss.

TRAINING CONTENT

  2. Financial fraud and cybercrimes currently bedevilling mainstream Microfinance institutions and SACCOs – why are criminals succeeding in hitting them and why the institutions are silent.
  3. Procurement and Accounts Payable Fraud in public and private institutions – why it is so successful and difficult to prosecute yet policies and procedures are deemed watertight and highly automated.
  4. Debtors and Sales Fraud – why organizations are losing most revenues and carrying fake debtor balances while sales executives and agents make the money. Why is it so successful?
  5. Expenditure fraud – Are the reported expenses in public entities real?
  6. Budgeting for fraud – how it is done and why it is difficult to pick and even harder to prosecute. While you budget, criminals within your organization budget too. How do you capture this fraud?

  8. NGO fraud schemes in modern times. Why are donor funds easily embezzled and stolen? Some donors approve of this. Why internal and external auditors fail to talk.
