While hacker attacks usually draw attention as they happen in real time, corporate fraud might take some time before being detected. Consequences can be prevented if the possible risk impact is assessed and first signs of atypical activity are identified.
Scam plotting is often performed by a group of colleagues who want to benefit from the opportunities presented to them through their job, obtaining greater profit by exploiting the company’s resources.
BRIBERY, LOBBYING AND SIDE SELLING, AS WELL AS ACCEPTING KICKBACKS, are widespread among businesses and are difficult to combat if there is no proper risk management system in place.
- A company’s development is undermined due to embezzlement and misrepresentation in financial statements.
- Employees can team up against top management and start their own business, which their employer knows nothing about. It’s easy to steal a company’s client base if customers are being offered lower prices. By luring clients away, employees threaten a company’s profit.
- Staff members can accept kickbacks when buying from those suppliers offering higher prices to a company.
- Employees might equip customers with incorrect information, making them pay more for a product or provide them the wrong products they didn’t agree to.
SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY DETECTION
Employees pose multiple risks to a business, endangering a company’s reputation and going against corporate objectives. Catching fraudsters is a difficult task and this can be implemented only thorough monitoring.
Rigorous inspection is necessary to facilitate governance and make internal processes transparent. An in-depth audit keeps track of a company’s recovery steps and allows management to prepare for unexpected occurrences, thereby contributing to business continuity program performance.
An internal audit:
- identifies an event
- assesses it
- collects information that can be provided to officials or used during an investigation
