Anti-Fraud Training

Anti-fraud training strengthen compliance

Strong compliance is a critical component of corporate management. While experts say that it is impossible to completely eliminate fraud, anti-fraud training is an effective line of defense against it, so they suggest developing suitable training courses for anti-fraud. D-Quest group recognized the importance of anti-fraud before the word “compliance” even entered the lexicon of Japan. In October 2004, we signed an exclusive licensing agreement with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), which offers top-level training related to anti-fraud around the world, allowing us to launch ACFE JAPAN in April 2005 and begin offering anti-fraud training in Japan. ACFE JAPAN continues to provide anti-fraud training to people involved in auditing, controls, compliance, and risk management as well as those who manage or monitor areas such as legal, accounting, general affairs, sales, and procurement.
ACFE JAPAN is the Japanese office of a largest anti-fraud training organization with over 85,000 members and about 200 branches around the world

Headquartered in the U.S. state of Texas, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) is an organization of certified fraud examiners who are experts in the area of anti-fraud. Together with its over 85,000 members and about 200 branches worldwide, it works to reduce fraud in businesses and achieve the credibility and objectivity expected of experts in anti-fraud.
The ACFE awards the certified fraud examiner (CFE) qualification to individuals to denote their status as experts in anti-fraud. This internationally recognized certification is suggested or required for investigators working in governments, law enforcements and administrative agencies in countries like the United States, Great Britain, and Canada and is highly regarded by entities such as the Government Accountability Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Acquiring this certification is also recommended by the International Atomic Energy Agency; the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria; and other international organizations, as well as companies that are expanding their operations globally.
Message of Endorsement
Dr. Shinji Hatta
Trustee Board Chairman, ACFE JAPAN
Doctor of Professional Accounting
Certified Fraud Examiner
Mr. Hatta is now a professor emeritus of Aoyama Gakuin University after his time as a professor at that institution's Graduate School of Professional Accountancy. He is also a professor at the Ohara Graduate School of Accounting. He has served as president of the Japan Auditing Association, president of the Japan Internal Control Research Association, chairman of the Japan Association of Graduate Schools for Professional Accountancy, and a member of the Financial Services Agency's Corporate Accounting Committee (head of the Internal Control Subcommittee).
The certified fraud examiner (CFE) qualification awarded by the ACFE denotes individuals who are experts in anti-fraud and has thus contributed to the detection, control, and prevention of fraud throughout the world. When I became aware of this organization, I thought that the time would come when the importance of that qualification would be recognized in Japan, too.
When D-Quest entered into a licensing agreement with the ACFE and launched ACFE JAPAN, I become involved as an advisor and have been assisting with the association's activities in Japan ever since.
ACFE JAPAN was a department of D-Quest at first, but in 2008 it became its own general incorporated association. I expect it to continue to expand the public nature of its activities and further increase its recognition as an organization that leads healthy societies in Japan.
