What is the Second-best Control for Fraud Prevention?

by | Jul 13, 2020 | Tax and Accounting Desk

The Houston Business Journal recently published an article on their website by PKF Texas Director, Danielle Supkis Cheek, who shares insight on selecting the “second-best” controls for fraud prevention.

Danielle references the 2020 ACFE Report to the Nations as a resource for information and data, which companies can use when finding the best fit for their environment. She asserts that the second-best control is based on:

  • Broad applicability to small to large company (and not-for-profits).
  • Ability to execute on a test basis for low cost and ability to scale up.
  • Extra unintended benefits usually derived for operations from its existence.
  • It is a proactive data monitoring/analysis program.
