About the Webinar

As a proactive credit professional, you look for process improvements to protect your company and make your credit underwriting meaningful and effective. A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers fraud survey cites about half of the polled companies reported being a victim of fraud in the past 24 months, the second-highest reported level in 20 years. Losses totaled roughly $42 billion in the last two years. The survey also estimates 30-40% of incidents go unreported. These losses cross all industry segments, and working remotely has increased the incidence of fraud.

The order-to-cash process includes several areas of vulnerability to hackers and fraudulent activity. In this webinar, join credit professional, Bob Karau, as he explores these vulnerabilities and discusses the best ways to protect your company.

Get ready for a fresh, fast-paced, 60-minute entertaining and interactive session on ways to integrate fraud detection into your credit underwriting process.

An Overview of Topics

  • Fraud Detection and Prevention 101—basic steps to integrate into credit checking processes to prevent customer/client threats.
