Dannible & McKee, LLP, a certified public accounting and consulting firm with offices in Syracuse and Binghamton, New York, is proud to announce that Kaitlyn Hensler, CPA, has been awarded the globally-preferred Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credential by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). To become a CFE, Hensler met a stringent set of criteria and passed a rigorous exam administered by the ACFE.
The CFE credential demonstrates a knowledge in four areas critical to the fight against fraud: Fraudulent Financial Transactions, Fraud Prevention and Deterrence, Legal Elements of Fraud, and Fraud Investigation. As a CFE, Hensler can help clients implement the appropriate internal controls to help them prevent fraud, as well as investigate possible fraudulent activities.

According to the 2016 Global Fraud Study by the ACFE, the typical organization loses 5 percent of annual revenues to fraud. The median loss caused by fraud in the study was $150,000, with 23.2 percent of the cases causing losses of at least $1 million.
