What the Fraud?! Small Business Strategies to Identify & Combat Fraud

Tue 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM

This event has been canceled


Business Fraud


Small businesses should be aware that they need internal controls to reduce the probabilities of the occurrence of internal fraud. Unfortunately, implementing these controls in a small business can be a challenging task. However with a bit of creativity, even those businesses with one employee can put controls in place to help prevent, detect and deter fraud.  This presentation is a group seminar designed to educate small business owners about the type of fraud that exists, how to put controls in place, and how to recognize frauds as they occur.  Several real life cases will also be discussed.

Presented by:

Robyn Shaw
Investigative Financial Analyst, 4th Judicial District Attorney's Office, Colorado Springs
