    011 - Is Corruption the Main Problem of Our Time? (Part 1)

    011 - Is Corruption the Main Problem of Our Time? (Part 1)

    Is corruption the most important issue of our time? Can anyone hope to  tackle any other global problem – be it climate change, migration,  security, wealth inequality – without addressing grand fraud and  corruption? This is the first in a series of episodes where I discuss  this question with Sarah Chayes, an award-winning international  journalist, author and former advisor to the US Joint Chiefs of Staff,  Admiral Mike Mullen.

    010 - Crisis Communication (Germany)

    010 - Crisis Communication (Germany)

    Bad communication can harm an organization as much as the fraud itself. So what's the role of a communicator in a crisis team? What should the other team members expect from a crisis communicator - and what should the crisis communicator expect from them? How did digitization and the fake news discussion affect crisis PR? For this episode, I talked to Ulf Mehner, co-founder and director of WeichertMehner, a public relations consultancy based in Dresden, Germany.

    008 - Risk Assessment: The Guide’s Update 2022

    008 - Risk Assessment: The Guide’s Update 2022

    The COSO/ACFE “Fraud Risk Management Guide” published 2016 is the global benchmark for investigators performing fraud risk assessments. In this episode, I interview one of the Guide’s principal authors, David L. Cotton (CPA, CFE, CGFM). David describes the key elements of a successful fraud risk assessment and outlines the Guide’s current structure. He also announces the upcoming publication of the Guide’s 2022 update and describes some of the added elements, including a massive expansion of the Guide’s popular online (free) tool.

    007 – Investigating Russia

    007 – Investigating Russia

    Russia sanctions: What should investigators worldwide focus on? What  risks - other than those associated with UBO, AML, cyber - have just  sky-rocketed? I talked to Olga Belikova (CFE) from Kiev. Like many  Ukrainian CFEs, since 2014 she gathered a wealth of experience  investigating Russian sanction evasion patterns.

    This episode is the second and final part of an interview recorded on March 12th. For part 1 see “006 – A Message From Ukraine”.

    006 - A Message From Ukraine

    006 - A Message From Ukraine

    This episode looks at the everyday reality of a colleague living in a  war zone. Olga Belikova (CFE) from Kiev talks about February 24 and how  her life has changed since then. She also describes her 48 hour, 600 km  trip across Ukraine, from Kiev to Lviv, during the war's second week.  The episode was recorded on Saturday, March 12th.

    In a second episode, to be published next Monday, we ask what she thinks the global corruption investigator community in general and CFEs in particular can or should pay attention to in the course of their work post 2/24. As Ukrainian investigators have gathered a particularly valuable set of expertise with sanction busters since 2014, we ask what scams are particularly popular? What conduits and locations are being used more often?
