Organizations lose an estimated 5% of their annual revenues to fraud

With organizations losing an estimated 5% of their annual revenues to fraud, the need for a strong anti-fraud attitude and a proactive, comprehensive approach to combating fraud is clear. As organizations increase their focus on risk, they should take the opportunity to consider, enact and improve measures to detect, deter and prevent fraud.
