Mu­tual and Fed­eral to raise fraud aware­ness

RISKSA Magazine - - Advertorial -

On spe­cial in­vi­ta­tion from Mu­tual and Fed­eral, the South African In­sur­ance Crime Bureau (SAICB)’s Hugo van Zyl will be host­ing fraud aware­ness ses­sions with the in­surer’s bro­kers and staff. Top­ics to be tack­led in­clude cur­rent in­dus­try trends and vi­tal tips to ap­ply to proac­tively de­tect fraud. “The aim of this week was to high­light the se­ri­ous­ness and ev­er­grow­ing prob­lem of eco­nomic crimes in South Africa and our in­dus­try in par­tic­u­lar. Fraud Week was first or­gan­ised 12 years ago by the As­so­ci­a­tion of Cer­ti­fied Fraud Ex­am­in­ers, the world’s largest anti-fraud or­gan­i­sa­tion in an ef­fort to proac­tively fight fraud and help busi­nesses safe­guard their as­sets. The cam­paign was de­signed to raise the level of aware­ness and en­cour­age our bro­kers and em­ploy­ees to be vig­i­lant and re­port any sus­pi­cious and fraud­u­lent ac­tiv­i­ties,” said Gary Slater head of foren­sics at Mu­tual and Fed­eral. “The SAICB is the only en­tity man­dated by the short-term in­sur­ance in­dus­try to en­able col­lab­o­ra­tion and fa­cil­i­ta­tion in ad­dress­ing or­gan­ised crime and fraud pre­ven­tion on be­half of the in­dus­try. And we en­cour­age all our mem­ber com­pa­nies to em­brace In­ter­na­tional Fraud Aware­ness Week in this man­ner,” added Hugo.
