Fight against fraud.

Fraud is constantly changing in the digital age. New ways to compromise companies, such as the increasing practice of “CEO Fraud”, are continually being invented – and fraud attempts can come from anywhere, both inside and outside your organisation. As a result, adequate protection for your business means that employees need to be acutely aware of the dangers and know what action to take in case of a threat.

To accomplish this, Sponge offers a learning programme specially designed to create cultural and behavioural change in the workplace and help ensure that fraud prevention habits become ingrained as part of day-to-day activity. Created by fraud authorities in collaboration with our learning experts, our modular programme is adaptable not only to your sector but also to your individual business, whatever its scale.

Drive cultural and behavioural change.

Authoritative content.

Created by leading fraud prevention specialists alongside Sponge's learning science experts, our programme is designed to drive behavioural change – not just impart academic knowledge.

Customised to your needs.

Build a tailored programme through our Mix & Match modules and target specific knowledge gaps - or go fully bespoke.

Easy, fast deployment.

Seamless deployment through your existing LMS, or delivered with Sponge’s dedicated LMS solution.

In your language.

With ready-made options in English, German and French, and the capability to serve a wide range of other languages.

What our ready-made
programme offers.

Every organisation has different learning requirements and gaps in understanding that need to be filled. With our special Mix & Match system, your learning manager can work with our experts to identify the training modules employees need and the lesson type that suits them best – from text and images to video, animations and simulations.

Our programme teaches employees how to recognise different potential acts of deception and help them prevent fraud. A separate lesson, Fraud through identity forgery, is dedicated to the topic of CEO fraud.

The Fraud Prevention learning programme has been created in consultation with technical expert and certified fraud examiner Steffen Salvenmoser, a specialist in criminal and commercial law. A lecturer at the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences in the master's programme in economic forensics, he worked for many years as a forensic investigation expert and partner at PwC, and as a judge and prosecutor specialising in white-collar crime. More information can be found at

Our fraud prevention learning programmes are used by corporations including Brenntag, Cronimed, DEG and Forbo – as well as a number of financial service providers such as Finacor Germany, IKB Deutsche Industriebank, Landesbank Berlin/Berliner Sparkasse, and Thüringer Aufbaubank.
