BoardAndFraud is a blog that attempts to bring a practical approach to issues facing the board of directors and the audit committee – I strive to be a value architect!  Specifically, in the areas of governance, risk management, compliance, and internal audit, with a strong focus on fraud, ethics, and internal controls. However, no topic is undiscussable!
