Bentonville, AR (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
Ryan J. Hauber, MBA, CFE, partner-in-charge of risk advisory services at Honkamp Krueger & Co., P.C. (HK) has been selected to present at this year’s international conference for the Association of Certified Fraud Examiner (ACFE), June 17-22 in Orlando, Fla.
Hauber’s presentation, “Addressing the Business Risk of Fraud in 2012 and Beyond,” will review several key areas and items which are susceptible to fraudulent behavior in various industries and organizations. Addressing the business risk of fraud is an under-hyped best practice for organizations interested in helping to proactively protect their employees, knowledge capital, reputations and assets. “Organizations of all shapes and sizes should have an independent fraud risk assessment conducted by a third-party company every three years,” says Hauber. “It is a proactive best-practice used to help organizations reduce potential losses and put procedures in place to detect fraud earlier.” Those attending the presentation will also get an overview on recent fraud statistics and facts, along with items that provoke the cause-and-effect conundrum related to recognizing fraud risk.
The ACFE conference is the world’s largest anti-fraud event with an attendance of over 2,300 professionals. It allows business professionals to explore current challenges in the fight against fraud and learn new skills and techniques for fraud investigation, prevention and deterrence, ethics and compliance, fraud auditing, risk management and more.
