Increased globalization and technological innovation have multiplied opportunities for crime in areas such as information theft, procurement and management conflict of interest. While some firms have enhanced efforts to detect malfeasance, others have done little to stem what threatens to become a powerful tide. In its international survey of 901 corporate executives, risk management firm Kroll – assisted by the Economist Intelligence Unit – does an admirable job of assessing corporate fraud and its future prospects. getAbstract recommends this comprehensive report to senior executives, risk managers and others responsible for detecting and combating corporate fraud.
In this summary, you will learn
- What a survey of global executives reveals about trends in corporate fraud,
- How fraud affects different businesses in different countries and regions, and
- What companies can do to curb malfeasance.
