When it Comes To Fraud, What is The Cost of Complacency?

The ACFE invites you to publish and/or post for your audience our new infographic,

“The Cost of Complacency.”

When it comes to fraud, what is the cost of complacency? Research conducted
by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the world’s largest
anti-fraud organization, indicates that the longer a fraud lasts before it
is detected, the more the victim organization stands to lose.

A new infographic illustrating the relationship between anti-fraud controls
and the duration and cost of fraud has been made available by the ACFE for
download online at
FraudWeek.com. The data was compiled by the ACFE for its 2014 Report
to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse.

The full Report is available for download (in PDF format) online at: ACFE.com/RTTN.
