Global Fraud Report 2013-2014

This seventh edition of the Kroll Global Fraud Report was prepared in cooperation with the Economist Intelligence Unit. Following a decrease in 2012, fraud is on the rise again, and so are the costs involved in managing it. These factors are in turn driving up companies’ sense of vulnerability. Every kind of fraud covered in this year’s survey saw an increase in incidence, with vendor, supplier or procurement fraud and management conflict of interest seeing the biggest growth.

Global Fraud Report 2012-2013

This sixth edition of the Kroll Global Fraud Report, prepared in cooperation with the Economist Intelligence Unit, provides both heartening and sobering news for businesses around the world. On the one hand, fraud is down globally. The proportion of companies that suffered an incident declined from 75 percent last year to 61 percent in the current survey. This surely reflects the efforts of companies to actively manage their fraud risk. However, fraud is anything but defeated, with the most common frauds, theft of physical assets and information theft (reported by 24 percent and 21 percent of companies respectively), remaining stubbornly persistent and widespread.

Global Fraud Report 2010-2011

The fourth edition of the Kroll Global Fraud Report takes a closer look at the issues that Kroll is most frequently asked to investigate, and the variations in the nature of the threat across different regions. This year we analyze for the first time fraud losses as a percentage of income. There is cause for concern: fraudsters’ take from business increased 20% in the last 12 months. Almost 90% of respondents report being victims of fraud – similar to last year’s survey results.

Global Fraud Report 2009-2010

The data collected in the third edition of the Kroll Global Fraud Report clearly highlights the industry hardest hit by fraud and wrongdoing: financial services. Over half of the respondents in this sector reported that the global financial crisis had increased levels of fraud at their companies – the highest figure for any industry. Nearly 90 percent of firms reported being victims of some kind of fraud in the last three years. This sector also had the second highest proportion suffering from each of internal financial fraud and management self-dealing.

Global Fraud Report 2007-2008

Fraud and corruption are the subject of Kroll’s first Global Fraud Report – and specifically, the implications of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or FCPA, a piece of US legislation that affects companies all over the world. Corruption is a problem for everyone – for those in the countries that are the victims, and for the companies that unwittingly facilitate bribes. The climate on corruption has changed decisively over the decades since FCPA was first introduced, and rightly so. But as this report explains, companies need to be aware of the challenges, and do more to meet them.
