Natural Resources: Managing fraud for competitive advantage

Businesses in the natural resources sector face particular challenges and can be especially vulnerable to fraud. Companies that measure their fraud cost, and manage it downwards, have a competitive advantage over companies that don’t. Effective counter fraud is proven to provide returns of 200 to 1, capable of reducing fraud cost by up to 40% in 24 months. The scale of the savings possible can be the difference between generating a profit or a loss.

This seminar will cover:

  • macro-economic trends affecting the natural resources sector and implications for the future
  • how and why in-country operations often fail to reflect policies and procedures designed at head office, and implications for managing fraud costs
  • examples of how fraud has been managed for competitive advantage.
