The potential for fraud is more prevalent than you may think.
Businesses, governments, and nonprofits of all sizes are at risk – and if it happens, it can be costly.
A typically fraud case causes a loss of $8,300 per month and lasts 12 months before detection, per a report from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).
The ACFE reported nearly half of fraud cases occurred due to:
Lack of internal controls (29%) and override of existing controls (20%).
Organizations with the fewest employees had the highest median loss ($150,000).
