Fraud Risk Assessment

James B. Yard CPA, CIA, Adam J. Goode, CPA

A strong fraud risk management program will help prepare for, protect and enable your organization to develop a response plan in the event fraud risk elevates to unacceptable levels.

Schneider Downs can help your organization identify and manage the risks of fraud by performing a Fraud Risk Assessment. During the process we work closely with management and create a tailored fraud risk assessment to meet the needs of your organization.

The following key areas are assessed during an assessment: 

  • Overall fraud governance including Board and Senior Management oversite
  • Fraud roles and responsibilities
  • Fraud risk management policies and procedures
  • Comprehensive fraud training and awareness
  • Fraud risk assessment, including inherent and residual risk factors
  • Fraud assessment rating criteria in order to appropriately prioritize key fraud risks
  • Anti-fraud control activities
  • Fraud monitoring and testing activities over the first, second and third lines of defense
  • Overall program monitoring activities to ensure that fraud risk activities are continuously assessed and mitigated
