Payment fraud is expanding on all fronts. It’s both internal and external and without the proper controls in place, organizations can be hit using a variety of approaches. In this session, we look at the types of fraud and then offer recommendations on best practices to minimize check fraud, p-card fraud, T&E fraud, and electronic payment fraud. Because electronic payment fraud is relatively new and the number of ways it can be committed is so varied, we spend quite a bit of time on that topic.
Learn how to empower your accounts payable department to prevent overpayments and minimize fraud risk while enriching the work experience of your team. This workshop will focus on:
- Identifying risks associated with all key activities of the accounts payable function
