Kreston International takes lead in Latin America on Fraud Detection and Prevention
Over 100 delegates drawn from the multinational companies operating in Latin America recently attended Kreston International’s one day summit on International Fraud Prevention in Mexico City.

Entitled “Tendencies and Technologies to help Minimize Risks in your Business”, the seminar, organized by Kreston Mexico with the support of the Kreston International member firms in Argentina (Lisicki Litvin y Asociados) and the USA (CBIZ MHM) was arranged in response to the introduction of the new Mexican anti-money laundering law.
Presentations were given by Banamex and Ausra Insurance on methods of fraud prevention and detection and Qlickview showcased the latest system for detecting irregular transactions online.

Kreston’s specialists, Martin Ghirardotti, from Argentina reviewed the options for whistle blower procedures and Mike Gallagher from the USA covered technology tools available for fraud detection. The Summit included a review of real life case studies and the lessons that the delegates could apply to reduce the risks in each of their businesses.
Agustín Mendoza, Managing Partner of Kreston CSM commented:

“We were extremely pleased with the quality and the number of delegates who were attracted to this event. We were able to discuss the issues and provide an insight into the range of tools available. Kreston’s firms across Latin America have demonstrated their ability to work in close collaboration to support international companies looking to detect and minimise the threat of fraud”.
