Both public and private sector organizations are constantly at risk for financial and reputational loss. Past financial scandals have brought to light how financial incentives or greater pressure can lead to fraudulent reporting. The challenges faced in the current climate only increases the fraud risk, making it even more critical for organizations to be more vigilant than ever before. Financial losses due to white-collar crime have increased over the last few years. Learn more about last year’s fraud cases in our Forensic Fraud Barometer study.
