Program on Financial Frauds & Forensic Audit

Wednesday, December 21, 2022 to 22-Dec-2022
Forum & Capitol, Taj President, Cuffe Parade, Mumbai


Increasing incidences of financial frauds in the loan portfolio of banks, both in terms of number and value, have been a major concern. Additionally, frauds on account of small value card / internet based transactions have also seen a spurt. Besides financial loss implications, such incidences evoke reputational and systemic concerns. It renders the security and control systems inadequate, besides putting a question mark on the ability of an institution to maintain the requisite standards to prevent money laundering and fraudulent transactions. An analysis of the vintage of frauds reported during 2020-21 and 2021-22 also shows a significant time-lag between the date of occurrence of a fraud and its detection.

Program Objective:

It is thus imperative for Banks, Financial Institutions and NBFCs to enhance their fraud risk management systems including their framework for Early Warning Signals; strengthen their fraud governance and response systems and have a dedicated Market Intelligence Unit for frauds. It is important to identify control failures, uncover trails and gather legally tenable evidence, trace the funds and achieve financial resolution and prosecution. A sound forensic audit, which is a complex and specialized function often undertaken by external intermediaries, helps in attaining such multiple objectives. The senior staff of the financial sector need to have an understanding of the processes intricately, enabling implementation of effective measures.
