2014 ACFE Global Fraud Study
Fraud – it costs businesses thousands each year. To ensure your business isn’t affected, knowing what to look for and understanding how to combat occupational fraud is vital. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ (ACFE) 2014 Global Fraud Study has analysed more than 1,400 cases to help you reduce your organisation’s vulnerability.
The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ (ACFE) 2014 Global Fraud Study states: Fraud is ubiquitous; it does not discriminate in its occurrence. And while anti-fraud controls can effectively reduce the likelihood and potential impact of fraud, the truth is that no entity is immune to this threat.
Unfortunately, however, many organizations still suffer from an “it can’t happen here” mindset. To help combat this misconception, to raise public awareness about the cost and universal nature of fraud and to support anti-fraud professionals around the globe, we have undertaken extensive research into the costs and trends related to fraud.
