One in three organizations reports being hit by economic crime.1 And all too often, fraud is discovered too late. In some cases, its damage is irreversible. That’s because fraud does more than impact the bottom line. The damage to your reputation, shareholder trust, employee morale — not to mention from enforcement action and litigation — can be significant and lasting.

You need to combat internal and external fraud — both after it comes to light and, crucially, before it can manifest. And if an incident or allegation has already come to light — be it a whistleblower claim, asset misappropriation, suspicious transaction, enforcement notice, or any of a host of other irregularities — you must pursue the facts with speed and precision, respond appropriately, and remediate effectively.
