Anti-Fraud Collaboration launches website

BY KEN TYSIAC

A new website, AntiFraudCollaboration.org, is providing resources to help audit committees, financial executives, internal auditors, and external auditors deter and detect financial reporting fraud.

The site is a product of the Anti-Fraud Collaboration, a partnership between the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ), Financial Executives International, The Institute of Internal Auditors, and the National Association of Corporate Directors. The CAQ is affiliated with the AICPA.

The organizations partnered in 2010 to develop thought leadership, awareness programs, educational opportunities, and related resources to help deter and detect fraud.

“The new website is an important step in the evolution of the Anti-Fraud Collaboration,” CAQ Executive Director Cindy Fornelli said. “As the Collaboration and other groups continue to develop important resources in the battle against financial reporting fraud, the partners felt it was critical to direct corporate governance stakeholders to a single website to access those materials.”
