Fraud prevention and detection

The Firm’s forensic accountants include certified fraud examiners (CFEs) who have experience conducting internal investigations and installing effective fraud deterrence systems. The team knows what patterns to look for in the data of an organization, and they can identify the key behavior patterns and psychological profiles of people who are likely to commit fraud. We also understand that many frauds exploit weaknesses in computer networks, which is why our CPAs Certified as an Information System Auditor (CISA) are an integral part of our fraud investigations. In addition, all team members have extensive experience evaluating business processes and internal controls to identify weaknesses and suggest improvements. Our professionals have experience across all industries and are uniquely qualified to identify fraud risks and fraudulent activities in their industry of expertise.
