11 February 2013 – UK businesses have never been more susceptible to insider fraud as highlighted by the latest CIFAS Staff Fraud Database. This has revealed a 43% overall increase in the number of staff frauds recorded in 2012 when compared with the previous year.
To help businesses detect and prevent insider fraud, Simon Fowler, Managing Director of Advanced Business Solutions (Commercial Division), provides the following top ten tips.
Many organisations are failing to address the real issue of insider fraud and so it remains the ‘elephant in the room’. This is despite the number of insider fraud cases increasing considerably in 2012. It’s therefore vital for organisations to put measures and technologies in place to safeguard themselves, sooner rather than later!
