Fraud Risk Assessment & Audit
How easily can fraud infiltrate your company?
Fraud victimizes far more companies than the media report. Even companies that have passed the various internal control assessments required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) are vulnerable. SOX helps protect against material fraud, but a recent report from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners found that roughly one-third of fraud cases are on a nonmaterial scale. CBIZ fraud risk assessments and audits can help protect you against all levels of fraud.
Our certified fraud examiners and experienced internal control practitioners review your control environment from the perspective of a fraud perpetrator to evaluate how controls may be thwarted – not merely whether they are in place. This review through a forensic microscope provides our clients with unique insight of specific controls and processes that may be susceptible to fraud.
We draw from our investigative experience and industry trends to evaluate your current fraud prevention system. CBIZ then provides a report that summarizes your fraud risk rating and highlights the critical areas where your leadership can focus on making improvements.
Though often conducted in conjunction with a fraud risk assessment, fraud audits can also be completed as a separate engagement. Our fraud audit services test the controls that you have in place to determine whether they are adequate in your fight against fraud. In addition to validating existing controls, this audit will also highlight potential control enhancements to strengthen your anti-fraud program.
