Executives are under enormous pressure to meet stakeholder expectations regarding the prevention of fraud and corruption. However, the drive to demonstrate that they are complying with legislative requirements and high principles has, in many cases, overshadowed the need to deal with the problem itself. As a result, fraud and corruption remain a significant unmanaged source of risk for many organizations. Drawing on experiences across Europe, America and Australia, Iyer and Samociuk give you the tools to establish an effective and far-reaching anti-fraud and corruption programme. Included is a compendium of techniques for assessing the true risk of fraud and corruption, reducing those risks and using health checks to provide early warnings. Also included is The Tightrope, A Story of Fraud and Corruption...which takes the reader from first suspicions through crisis and finally recovery in a vivid and instructive style, covering the lessons in the main text. This new book is a must-read for all those responsible for the prevention of fraud and corruption, risk management, corporate compliance, corporate responsibility and governance.

About the Author:

Nigel Iyer is a practitioner in fraud and corruption risk management with an emphasis on proactive prevention. Martin Samociuk was also a practitioner in fraud and corruption risk management. Both have extensive practical experience in this field in most parts of the world. The authors were founders of the Hibis Group, a consultancy specializing in the prevention and investigation of fraud and corruption.

Review:

'This is an articulate, incisive, and practical work for which both authors are to be congratulated. Very often books focused on a narrow topic will only appeal to a narrow readership. This is an exception; it will appeal to anyone responsible for risk management, corporate responsibility, governance, and compliance.' Security Management . '...very readable and richly illustrated with examples from reality' Institute of Internal Auditors (Sweden) 'The book's easy on the eye, broken up with diagrams and anecdotes, and key points at the end of each chapter. The authors lay out for a fraud manager how to recognize, and respect, the risk, how to prevent and detect, yes, and manage incidents, but ultimately how to achieve 'high resistance' against fraud. Every page has something to offer the practitioner. Also offered are a sample fraud policy and 'corporate health check', and a framework for running workshops...the authors plainly have the realities of corporate fraud at their fingertips.' Professional Security 'Fraud and corruption risk experts Martin Samociuk and Nigel Iyer have put together a comprehensive guide to what they call 'the greatest unmanaged risk'. Ingeniously, the authors have split the book in two. The first section equips readers with the tools they need for effective anti-fraud and corruption programmes drawing on decades of experience in Australia, The US and Europe. The second section, The Tightrope offers an anatomy of fraud written as a tense thriller. The book is packed with practical examples and offers a complete how-to on dealing with all aspects of fraud and corruption within all organizations.' Risk Management magazine 'Articulately written, this is in fact two books in one, incorporating a reference guide that focuses on prevention and detection tools and a case novel entitled The Tightrope. The reference part includes chapters on demystifying the issue, recognizing and assessing the risks, prevention and detection, management of incidents and developing resistance to fraud and corruption. The risk assessment chapter is particularly interesting and focuses on the importance of identifying would-be-attackers and the methods they are likely to use. The case novel is based on the authors' experiences. It presents an anatomy of fraud which can be used as a training tool to demonstrate how it can develop and manifest itself in an organization, and to raise awareness of the early signs of attack. Overall, this is an authoritative book that gives practical guidance on establishing a coherent anti-fraud and corruption programme in any organization.' Accounting Technician
