‘No one wants fraud or corruption on their watch; unless they’re the one committing it’

Many organisations have a ‘zero-tolerance’ approach to fraud and corruption, with policies and strategies designed to prevent their incidence or manage their risks. Yet, if they are not ingrained within organisational culture and practice, the risk still remains, and the reality can be a daunting one for any organisation tainted by fraud or corruption. This presentation highlights some of the organisational challenges associated with implementing and embedding anti-fraud and corruption programs. It discusses some practical solutions, with a focus on employees and broader stakeholder groups, who are pivotal in the development of long-term sustainable success.

Dr Allan Yates is employed by IAG in Group Financial Crime, Fraud and Corruption Risk. Allan has more than 20 years of experience in the prevention, education and investigation of fraud and corruption. This spans different sectors within the UK and Australia, including health, higher education and local government. Allan holds a PhD from the Australian National University for his thesis which explored perceptions and experiences of corruption within NSW local government.

We are pleased to partner with The Corruption Prevention Network of NSW (CPN) in this joint presentation. 

The Corruption Prevention Network of NSW (CPN) came into being in 1994 when practitioners together with officers from the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and Audit Office began meeting to consider how best to address systemic issues repeatedly exposed in internal and external investigations. Since that time we have evolved into what we are today, an incorporated body operating through an organising committee of elected volunteers.
