Industrial Manufacturing: KPMG 2022 Fraud Outlook

A triple threat across the Americas

Five things industrial manufacturing executives need to know

Our recent report, A triple threat across the Americas highlighted the overlapping fraud, non-compliance, and cyber attack challenges that confront businesses across all sectors today. This follow-up piece reviews the dangers facing industrial manufacturing companies, and outlines five things that sector executives need to know:

  1. A majority of industrial manufacturing companies experienced fraud in the last year, and their defenses are the weakest for any sector analysed in our survey.
  2. Industrial manufacturing firms may not appreciate the substantial fraud risk they face from company insiders.
  3. Protecting intellectual assets and information technology systems are the most pressing anti-fraud priorities for the sector.
  4. Less ready than peers for an expected compliance storm.
  5. Relatively weak cyber-security has seen further challenges as a result of greater remote working.
