Fraud is one of the biggest and most damaging risks businesses face. The headlines are full of organisations both in the private and public sectors affected by fraud, irregularity or other wrongdoing – either as victims or accused. Statistics show that the threat of Corporate Fraud increases markedly in a down economy.

And when such fraud occurs, it takes an average of 18 months to detect. In that timeframe, the damage to your business can be both widespread and irreversible. The hidden costs related to corporate fraud drain an estimated five per cent of revenue from corporations worldwide. Fraud Risk Investigations can help you with fraud risk management or fraud risk assessment.

Historically, most major corporate fraud cases have been perpetrated by senior management who can circumvent internal controls and often work in collusion with other employees.

What motivates fraud?

  • Pressures to Perform
  • Staff Reductions
  • Departmental Cuts
  • Business Survival
  • Overworked Audit Staff
  • Increased External Vulnerability Due to Weak IT Controls
  • Reduced Regulatory Oversight
