Investigate - How to run a successful fraud investigation?
Investigate - An interactive PwC simulation
Take on the role of investigator and experience a business crisis first-hand.
The ever evolving global regulatory landscape is a constant challenge for all organisations. Increased activity by law enforcement bodies, government agencies and regulators means that your organisation can face the intense scrutiny of an investigation, with no warning, and with huge reputational consequences.
The need for an effective compliance program, appropriate culture and behaviours, and to react decisively in the right way when things go wrong can be vital to your organisation’s survival.
How would you react to a dawn raid, or a serious whistle-blower allegation? The regulator is in the building, what do you do?
An "Investigate" session involves playing the simulation in a workshop with teams of up to four people, facilitated by experienced PwC Forensic Investigators.
Dive into "Investigate" and experience a realistic simulation of a regulatory crisis. Live how an investigation unfolds in a time pressured environment, the decisions that need to be made along the way, and the sources of evidence at your disposal as you build your understanding of the case.
Search e-mails, interview suspects, analyse data and make real time decisions to compile evidence and identify the suspects. At the time of the report submission, find out how well the team performed!
Access to a web-based investigations dashboard, and work in groups to help the company’s board understand whether fraud has taken place, and who was involved.
Experience a competition between groups to undertake the best investigation and observing the other groups' approach. Submit the group report and find out the performance of the others.
