Financial crime remains one of the greatest threats for businesses, financial and public institutions worldwide. It drains earnings and may expose both the entity and its senior management to criminal and civil liability. And worst of all, it can significantly damage companies’ most valuable assets – their reputation and their brand value.

Our Global Economic Crime Survey 2020 revealed that 47% of more than 5,000 respondents worldwide experienced fraud in the past 24 months. This is the second highest reported level in the past 20 years. The top 4 types of fraud are customer fraud, cybercrime, asset misappropriation and bribery and corruption – the latter being the type of fraud businesses are most often accused of in court.

Luxembourg is not immune to the risks of fraud. Its banking sector can be used to move illegal money, the interconnectedness between people can lead to an abuse of power or public money can be diverted to the pockets of fraudsters. Efficient prevention and timely detection of fraud are therefore critical to safely manage your fraud risks. Training your employees is key to raise awareness for these topics and sensitise them for risks.

PwC's Academy offers to highlight your requirements and explain good practices regarding this topic and to address in a comprehensive and practical way the questions you and your team are confronted with day by day.


At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • assess the various threats to entities and individuals
