Fighting Fraud is a Global Effort

Each year, organizations worldwide come together to promote anti-fraud awareness and education during International Fraud Awareness Week. ICW Group is once again a proud participant of this year’s event happening November 15-19. We aim to inform our current and potential policyholders about the many forms of fraud – including workers’ compensation insurance fraud – and what we can all do to detect, deter and defeat fraud.  

Established by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the week-long campaign encourages business leaders and employees to minimize fraud’s impact proactively. During this week, ICW Group will conduct the sixth installment of our Special Investigation’s Unit Work Comp Fraud: Spot It & Stop It webinar training series. The webinar will provide actionable steps you can take to prevent work comp fraud from happening to your business, as well as what ICW Group can do to help. You can register for the webinar here. We will also feature anti-fraud tools and information on our social feeds, so follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.

Be sure to check out our library of anti-fraud resources available on our Policyholder Center. You can also watch the first five installments of our Spot It and Stop It webinar series.
