ACFE: Meet the delegate – Martin Barye, Mars

Research from the ACFE, SRA and PwC shows that fraud is on the rise across all industries and many professional organisations are searching for effective ways to combat and minimise risk. We believe that your team can be an effective tool to help protect your organisation, particularly if they’re aware of key warning signs and best practice procedures. That’s where our Certified Fraud Examiner (ACFE) course can help, by teaching delegates how to identify, investigate and prevent fraud from occurring. This week, we’re speaking to our former delegate, Martin Barye of Mars Inc, about his experience with our ACFE course to understand how this has benefitted him.
