Background Information

Corporate financial accounting scandals such as Tyco, Enron and WorldCom and much more have increased concerns cases of frauds across the global (Ramaswamy, 2005). For instance, in the UAE billions of dollars have been embezzled leading to erosion and loss of investors’ confidence in financial institutions and markets (Halbouni, Obeid & Garbou, 2016)

. A report by Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (2005) argues that average loss per company related to economic accounting cases amounts to over $2billion in a span of one accounting years across the global (Examiners, 2005). Particularly, the report indicates that over $40million is lost per accounting year as result of occupational fraud in the UAE. Fraud cases have adverse implication to the affected firm. Damages inflicted by fraud goes beyond monetary loss. Fraud causes collateral damages such as loss of firm’s reputation, damage to external business relations, brand damage, and loss of employee morale among other damages. Most of these damages have a long-term impact on organization’s reputation.


Most organizations use internal controls as a means of preventing fraud. Despite the existence of these controls, cases regarding fraud have massively increased. Fraud cases have been increased because most organizations have been developing impractical strategies to detect and prevent fraud. For instance, most organizations use the strategy of dealing with case by case basis instead of developing a long-term strategy such as the use of technology to prevent fraud. Moreover, most legislation dealing with fraud such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 put much focus on punishment and accountability rather than developing strategies to prevent fraud on a long-term basis (Hoitash, Hoitash, & Bedard, 2008). Increase in these cases has led to more research studies focusing the ways which can be used to prevent and detect fraud. Most organizations in the UAE have used corporate governance and technology to detect and prevent fraud cases. The primary purpose of this study is to assess the role and impact of these aspects in detecting and preventing fraud cases before it happens.
