Preventing fraud

Fraudsters target any and all businesses and rely on exploiting their victims’ weaknesses.  Understanding those weaknesses and risks is the most effective way for a business to protect themselves against fraud.

While all businesses are different in size, approach and appetite for risk, there are some general principles that can be applied to all business situations.  There is no one-size fits all approach to fraud prevention. Instead, it is about adopting a general mindset of awareness and action in the parts of your business that could be vulnerable.
