Praise for Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control

"Our nation is faced with dual alarming trends of record highs in white-collar crime and seemingly record lows in ethics. The solution cannot be left only to legislators, regulators, and law enforcement. It requires the attention of all of us in business to create a culture of compliance. This new book by Martin Biegelman and Joel Bartow is an invaluable resource to achieving the highest levels of compliance."
-- Kenneth J. Hunter, former chief postal inspector and former president & CEO of the Council of Better Business Bureaus

"This is a timely and thought-provoking addition to fraud and risk management literature. For seasoned executives who are navigating the maze of compliance, legislative requirements, and increasingly sophisticated criminal activity, this book will be a frequent reference and guide. Neophyte managers will gain years of insight and direction that can only benefit their organizations. Academics, both faculty and students, will learn from the authors' ability to apply theory to high-level practice."
-- Gary R. Gordon, EdD, Professor of Economic Crime Management and Executive Director, Economic Crime Institute of Utica College

"All executives need to protect themselves and their organizations from the potentially catastrophic damage fraud can cause, both financially and reputationally. This new book is a very clear and practical guide to achieving that goal."
-- Toby J. F. Bishop, President and Chief Executive Officer, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners

"This book is a must-read for anyone eager to understand--and prevent--the toxic mix of temptations that can destroy a company's reputation overnight. The authors, both seasoned former fraud investigators, bring a unique, clear-eyed perspective to the topic of corporate fraud. They have seen it all, and their book is an invaluable reference for senior management, compliance executives, in-house lawyers, and anyone else who cares about corporate integrity."
-- Leslie R. Caldwell, Partner, Morgan Lewis & Bockius former director, U.S. Department of Justice Enron Task Force

"Excellent resource! A great guide for corporate management in the post-Enron world."
-- Karen A. Popp, Partner, Sidley Austin Brown & Wood LLP and former associate counsel to President Bill Clinton and former federal prosecutor

From the Inside Flap:

If you have to sign on the dotted line and if your success depends on the bottom line, this is the book for you.

Under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, CEOs and CFOs must now sign on the dotted line, personally attesting to the accuracy of financial statements and to the fact that their companies have proper internal controls to prevent and detect fraud. That's a tremendous responsibility. This book helps executives understand complex compliance requirements, identify types of fraud, implement awareness and prevention training, and establish a robust fraud detection, investigation, and prevention program. More importantly, it helps companies establish an ongoing culture of compliance. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) reports that the average organization loses six percent of its annual revenue to fraud and abuse; a proactive culture of compliance can significantly improve a company's bottom line.

Authoritative and comprehensive, Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control covers:

  • The major compliance and corporate governance initiatives from 19852004
  • 14-Point Management Antifraud Programs and Controls to proactively prevent and deter fraud in an organization
  • An ACFE Fraud Prevention Check-Up to test how vulnerable an organization is to fraud, identify major gaps, and fix them before it's too late
  • Best practices for whistleblower protection and hotlines
  • Key steps in designing a robust fraud prevention program
  • Updates to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizational Crime
  • How the government investigates and prosecutes corporate fraud
  • PCAOB Auditing Standard #2
  • Risk factors relating to fraudulent financial reporting and misappropriation of assets
  • Guidelines for creating a culture of compliance

This is not a dry, accounting treatise; it focuses on the human element and appropriate safeguards, checks, and balances. Interviews with a convicted fraudster, a corporate fraud investigator, and a fraud prevention visionary give a unique, first-hand perspective. Executive Insights throughout the book detail case studies related to the content. Each chapter has an Executive Summary that condenses the key points for busy executives.

Whether you're a CEO, CFO, manager, auditor, controller, risk management professional, or a student, Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control is your best route to understanding all the complex issues and responsibilities associated with fraud and compliance.
