Fraud detection and prevention training

Our comprehensive training equips with proactive detection, prevention strategies, country case studies and insights to help safeguard your business and enhance security.


The prevalence of fraud is elevated in Latin America

Criminal and cyber fraud has become a priority for financial departments of corporates worldwide. For various reasons, Latin America remains a very fertile ground for corporate fraud. Prevention and detection remain one of the most efficient tools to fight fraud. Rather than trying to penetrate systems, fraudsters find it easier and cheaper to exploit human psychology. For that very reason, we have designed for you this comprehensive regional training.

In most cases when fraud has occurred it is too late. The funds have disappeared and are very difficult to recover, fraudsters are difficult to identify, and, even if identified generally insolvent. Also, if sued, justice will usually take a long time to apply sanctions.

If you can spare the time for only one in-depth course on fraud prevention and detection in South America this course will bring you extensive information, experience, recommendation, and numerous real case studies. But not only this. Within a common framework, we have designed country-specific courses in respective languages. Your subsidiaries will benefit from the same general best practices and at the same time custom-made local content.
