The Annual Global Fraud Survey, commissioned by Kroll and carried out by the Economist Intelligence Unit, polled 768 senior executives worldwide from a broad range of industries and functions from January through March of 2015. The report reveals some key trends.
The overall observation is that fraud has continued to increase, with 75% of companies reporting they have fallen victim to a fraud incident within the past year, an increase of 14% from just three years ago. The number of businesses suffering a financial loss as a result of fraud has also increased, from 64% in the previous survey period to 69% this year.
