Session One (10am) - Eyes wide open or eyes wide shut – Leadership, Culture & Fraud
When we talk about governance and financial crime risks, we often think about the regulatory frameworks, policies and procedures in place to help protect an organisation. As we respond to financial risk exposures following COVID-19, many commentators are envisaging a new wave of fraud. Is increased regulation the answer to such risks? This presentation considers how poor leadership can create a culture of disenchantment amongst employees, resulting in heightened internal fraud risk, perpetrated not by lone wolves but by a pack of wolves. In the US, the Wells Fargo and VW cases totalled $6bn in fines alone, not to mention reputational damage. In both cases, leadership were held accountable for the organisation’s wrongdoing with the culture they created being a key factor in the dishonest actions that took place.
