Become a Fraud Fighter and do the most for your organization to prevent fraud. Nonprofit organizations need to abide by strict internal control practices. While fraud can be discovered at the user level, using a technological solution increases the likelihood of catching fraud early.

Technology limits access for internal employees to protect who can access your client’s data, and having strong internal controls deters data theft caused by cyberattacks and fraud. Your firm can set rules and monitor user permissions to access applications or specific files. Safeguarding your data is the biggest thing you can do to fight fraud at your organization.

Be a Fraud Fighter and achieve gains for your organization like no one else can.

Topics discussed:

Best practices around internal controls

The benefits of technological solutions in fighting fraud

Strategies to prevent fraud on an organizational level
