EO 507 – Fairial Harmen

Fairial Harmen
Ernst & Young Advisory Services (Pty) Limited
Manager – Fraud investigations

Why did you attend the programme?
This is a service which we can extend to our clients.

How did it benefit you personally?
I learned so much from the course. I find it much easier to perform fraud and corruption risk assessments as I use the basis of an ethics assessment to guide me. I have also used this technique in anti-corruption compliance testing and it has been very successful. I see that what you would consider logical and ethical is not always seen the same way by different people.

How is it benefiting your company?
Well until my certification, we have not been involved in Ethics risk assessments however, the benefit can be seen in the manner we approach all risk assessments since the training. It has been methodical and successful.
