The 2011 Global economic crime survey was completed by 3,877 respondents from 78 countries, making it one of the largest and most comprehensive studies of economic crime available to businesses. Of the total number of respondents, 52% were Directors or Senior executives of their respective organisations, 36% represented listed companies and 38% represented organisations with more than 1,000 employees.
The report is divided into two sections:
Cybercrime: Its impact on organisations, their awareness of the crime and what they are doing to combat the risks.
Fraud, the fraudster and the defrauded: The types of fraud committed, how they are detected, who is committing them and what the repercussions are.
