Overview

Praise for Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control Second Edition

"This book touches all the bases on corporate fraud. The authors—both experienced fraud investigators and federal law enforcement agents—lay out the history and major milestones of corporate fraud, and discuss with precision the key issues facing today's executives and compliance leaders. The book provides a valuable overview for business leaders looking to develop and implement effective compliance programs and instill a culture of integrity in order to help their organizations defeat the challenges posed by today's sophisticated fraudsters."
Jeffrey Eglash, Senior Counsel, Litigation & Legal Policy, GE

"Biegelman and Bartow's book offers expert guidance to anyone tasked with understanding and tackling fraud in the workplace. Their straightforward approach informs the reader and provides a roadmap and guidance for implementation of an effective fraud mechanism within any organization—small or large. I plan to provide a copy of the book to my board of directors and executive members of management."
Lisanne E. S. Cottington, Compliance Officer, Insight Enterprises, Inc.

"Business leaders would be wise to follow the recommendations in this book. Fraud prevention is more than just creating a set of policies. As the subtitle indicates, it is essential to create a culture of compliance. Empty words accomplish nothing. The authors, both experienced fraud examiners, have spent decades investigating fraud, as well as developing strategies to prevent it. This book is an essential tool in creating an anti-fraud environment in any company."
James D. Ratley, CFE, President & CEO, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners

"Biegelman and Bartow's Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control is an essential guide for all who have an interest in eradicating corporate or institutional fraud. The new Second Edition is an indispensable addition to the libraries of internal compliance and legal officers and forensic accountants."
Joel M. Cohen, Partner, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; former New York federal prosecutor and liaison to the French Ministry of Justice and OECD

"This new edition is extremely timely. These authors have used their extensive corporate and government experience to create a practical and easy-to-understand compliance guide. A superb resource for any executive."
Karen Popp, Partner, Sidley Austin LLP, and former federal prosecutor and Associate Counsel to President Clinton

"Martin Biegelman and Joel Bartow convert their lifelong experiences and unparalleled knowledge into a concise, well-written book. They provide the essential tools to take aspirational goals for fraud prevention and compliance and build them into concrete and effective programs."
From the Foreword by Bradley J. Bondi, Partner, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP

"Biegelman and Bartow provide great insight into not just how fraud occurs inside of companies, but why. Preventing fraud requires a solid understanding of both, making this book a must-read for any executive who is serious about creating the compliance mechanisms and the corporate culture needed for effective fraud prevention."
Aaron G. Murphy, Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP
