Certified Fraud Examiners protect you

Certified Fraud Examiners possess specialized knowledge and expertise and can assist in the following areas:

  • Investigate allegations against one of your employees
  • Implement strong anti-fraud internal controls
  • Conduct interviews related to sensitive issues
  • Provide assistance with financial dispute resolution
  • Resolve irregularities discovered during your company’s audit
  • Provide expert testimony on financial and investigative matters

 Beyond a traditional audit

Fraud-specific examinations bear few similarities to traditional audits. It’s fair to say that traditional auditing seeks to verify things that are known to be, but fraud-specific examinations seek to determine the existence of things that are not known to be and may not be. Certified Fraud Examiners are specialists in the detection, deterrence and examination of fraud and have a unique set of skills that are not found in any other discipline. They combine knowledge of complex financial transactions with an understanding of accounting, law, criminology, and fraud examination, and can help you resolve allegations of fraud. CFEs are knowledgeable in four critical areas:

  • Fraudulent Financial Transactions
  • Criminology & Ethics
  • Legal Elements of Fraud
  • Fraud Examination

 Professional ethics

Certified Fraud Examiners adhere to the CFE Code of Professional Ethics, which includes:

  • Commitment to professionalism
  • Diligence in performance
  • Avoidance of conflict of interest
  • Testifying truthfully and without bias or prejudice
  • Complete confidentiality
  • Revelation of all material matters discovered during an examination
  • Continued effort to increase the competence and effectiveness of professional services performed under his or her direction

The CFE credential is the globally preferred certification for anti-fraud professionals.
