OBJECTIVES

Every year one in four small businesses becomes a victim of fraud and recent research identified 44% of European organisations have reported some form of fraud and 93% of large businesses have experienced a cyber-breach. In fact, according to recent research carried out by Juniper Research the cost of cybercrime on global business could reach as much as $2.1 trillion by 2019.

Today criminals will target any business regardless of size by exploiting weaknesses both internal and external.

Understanding the weaknesses in your organisation is the best way to protect your business against fraud and cyber risk allowing you the opportunity to implement effective controls mechanisms before it’s too late.
