#2: LAUNCH THE ACFE CORPORATE ALLIANCE PROGRAM
In the latest issue of Fraud Magazine, the cover story, “Who Owns Fraud? Uniting Everyone to Effectively Manage the Anti-Fraud Program” emphasizes the old saying, “it takes a village.” The article suggests that management within a company must work together as a team to fight fraud effectively; with different functions playing different parts. It is with this same idea that we are launching the ACFE Corporate Alliance. We are currently running a pilot program with anti-fraud teams at USAA and Walmart, and will officially launch the program this spring.
The recent ACFE Report to the Nations estimates that the typical organization loses 5 percent of its annual revenue to fraud. Having anti-fraud experts like CFEs in a company can help reduce the impact of fraud. That is why we wanted to create an easy and beneficial way for companies to partner with the ACFE to educate and grow their fraud-fighting teams.
The new ACFE Corporate Alliance Program will help teams:
• Build a solid foundation of anti-fraud knowledge with group discounts on the CFE Exam Prep Course, the most effective tool available to help prepare for the CFE Exam.
• Stay up to date on the latest fraud news by receiving access to Fraud Magazine, e-newsletters and discussion forums.
• Receive exclusive training opportunities, as well as discounts on ACFE training, including live events, webinars and self-study courses.
• Get an extra level of personalized service including a dedicated liaison at the ACFE and free featured employer listings on the ACFE Job Board.
