MEET A FORMER ENEMY WITHIN
Daniel Miller 
had a role in the accounts department of a well-known and respected global business.  He was a diligent, reliable, trusted and well-presented employee.  Hear his story of how this all changed:  how he ultimately defrauded his employer to the amount of £250,000, and was convicted and sentenced to three years' imprisonment.  Daniel will focus particularly on the importance of effective systems and controls to mitigate the risks of internal fraud.
