Purcellville, VA (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
Lowers Risk Group announced that it will be participating in International Fraud Awareness Week, Nov. 3-9, 2013, as an official supporter to promote anti-fraud awareness and education. Organizations around the world lose an estimated 5 percent of their annual revenues to fraud, according to a study conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).
The enterprise risk management consulting company, Lowers Risk Group, joins hundreds of organizations who have partnered with the ACFE, the world's largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education, for the yearly campaign also known as “Fraud Week.” The movement raises awareness of the need to proactively fight fraud and help safeguard businesses and investments from the growing fraud problem.
During Fraud Week, Lowers Risk Group will engage in various activities, including a special series of fraud-related blog posts and resources on the company website.
“We are pleased to support the efforts of ACFE in increasing anti-fraud awareness and understanding of best practices to prevent fraud,” remarks Mark Lowers, President and CEO of Lowers Risk Group.
ACFE President and CEO James D. Ratley, CFE, said that the support of organizations around the world helps make Fraud Week an effective tool in raising anti-fraud awareness.
“Organizations of all sizes and types are susceptible to fraud, and it can have a measurable impact on their bottom line,” Ratley said. “While prevention and detection is a year-round endeavor, International Fraud Awareness Week shines a spotlight on fraud – and supporters of the campaign demonstrate their understanding that spreading awareness is key in combating the global fraud threat.”
“This marks the sixth year since Fraud Week became a global movement, and once again, we want to say ‘thank you’ to all of the supporters for making it a reality,” Ratley said.
