Financial scandals have rocked the business world over the last 15 years, with various high-profile global cases. Although the rise in these corporate disasters may not be relevant to most organisations operating in South Africa, the risk of financial impropriety remains the same. This is evidenced by the high rate of fraud and corruption in South Africa, which has its own local examples that are well publicised.

Organisations can face a variety of issues, ranging from fraud, corruption, disputes with third parties, transactions which may contravene various laws and regulations, cyber-attacks, loss of confidential information, “black holes” in financial records and ghost employees on the payroll.

Organisations who are facing these issues need assistance in recouping losses, litigation support or criminally prosecuting fraudsters. In addition to fraud, theft and corruption investigations, other issues can include cyber incident response, fronting, financial statement fraud, identity theft intellectual property theft and many more

Organisations need to be able to independently and objectively investigate issues such as fraud, corruption and bribery, in order to understand them and to quantify possible losses.
