Editorial Reviews


"Corporate Resiliency is a practical guide for executives to assist in managing the risks of fraud and corruption within their organizations. The book has much to recommend it. It is a very readable and useful guide to the problems and potential risks of fraud and corruption, and there are many clear, practical points of advice given throughtout the book. An insight into how these leading forensic accounting professionals think about these issues is an important resource for the business community." (The International Journal of Accounting, 2010, Volume 45, Issue 3, September)

From the Inside Flap

The twenty-first century global economy brings cheaper sources of supply and huge new markets, but also exposes companies to much greater risks and consequences of fraud and corruption. As a result of greater enforcement around the world, global media attention, and changing attitudes of consumers, fraud and corruption can now cost companies billions and destroy or severely damage their reputation.

Thought leaders Toby Bishop and Frank Hydoski argue that this scenario can make many companies more vulnerable to serious loss. They make a business case for boards and senior executives to adopt a fraud and corruption risk management strategy that can reduce vulnerability while increasing the ability to bounce back if fraud or corruption occurs.

Corporate Resiliency: Managing the Growing Risk of Fraud and Corruption is written for members of boards of directors and audit committees, senior executives, those who advise or report to them, and those responsible for managing fraud and corruption risks. It describes in plain English a proactive fraud and corruption risk management process that can enhance corporate resiliency.

The authors provide practical insights and highlight traps to avoid. Quotes from their interviews of business executives provide international perspectives regarding changes in fraud and corruption risks and techniques companies are adopting to deal with them.

This solutions-centered book discusses:

  • Reducing risk management surprises through better fraud and corruption risk assessment approaches
  • Using four different risk management strategies for the "Fears, Fires, Fleas, and Flaws" segments of your fraud and corruption risks
  • Preventive and detective controls including continuous controls monitoring and transaction monitoring
  • Preparing in advance for potential fraud and corruption investigations and remediation
  • The roles of different parties in fraud and corruption risk management-including yours
  • A corporate resiliency self-assessment tool you can use to assess your company

In the twenty-first century global economy, companies need to be more than smart and fast. They also need to be resilient. Corporate Resiliency shows you steps your company can take toward resiliency by identifying your fraud and corruption risks and deploying strategies for managing those risks proactively.

Corporate Resiliency is not just another book on the mechanics of detecting and preventing fraud in corporations. Toby Bishop and Frank Hydoski are two of the most recognizable leaders in the anti-fraud world, and professionals worldwide should not pass up this chance to hear their in-depth thoughts on he subject of faud.

The book begins with some in-your-face reality about the growth of fraud around the world. The truth is that companies are using old fraud detection and prevention methodologies to deal with new and different fraud risks. This disconnect has helped fuel the growth of fraud.

Sadly, companies aren't doing nearly enough to prevent fraud, but this book aims to change that with strategies to become resilient. The key to resiliency is that it will minimize the impact of fraud to the company.

The authors walk the reader through the process of fraud risk assessment. Have you heard it all before? Not like this, you haven't. Many of the books on fraud prevention suggest that management assess the company's risk, but provide very few details. Corporate Resiliency lays out the steps, the approach to take to risk assessment, and the output from the process. Each of the five steps are illustrated beautifully with suggestions on ways to identify risks and the types of controls that may mitigate these risks.

Corporate Resiliency continues with some of the most basic and most effective anti-fraud controls that companies can utilize. These strategies are centered around the idea that a "control environment" (an atmosphere in which integrity is promoted and dishonesty is met with action) is a major key to reducing fraud. This chapter walks management through over 20 strategies, most of which can be low-cost to the organization implementing them.

Corporate Resiliency by authors Bishop and Hydoski is very well done. The book is easy to read and provides a wealth of information, especially for those who are navigating the anti-fraud environment for the first time. Managers, executives, board and audit committee members as well as experienced internal and external auditors will find the information and suggestions helpful and practical. As an experienced professional working in the field, I identified new ideas and unique ways of looking at the world. Like it or not, anti-fraud efforts are here to stay and many are saddled with this responsibility for the first time. Thought leaders Toby bishop and Frank Hydoski deserve credit for attacking the issues head-on in a thoughtful manner. I would highly recommend this book.
