There is rarely an event or seminar I attend that a fellow anti-fraud professional doesn’t share with me the value that the ACFE’s Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse recently provided to a certain case or investigation. This publication is one of the most, if not the most, popular resources we have the privilege of working on here at the ACFE.
The Report, now in its sixth edition, remains one of the most widely-quoted sources on white-collar crime statistics in the world. That is why we need your help to make the seventh edition, set to be released next year, as valuable as ever. We are asking all CFEs to take the 2011 Global Fraud Survey, a study that will serve as the foundation for the 2012 Report to the Nations.
After including statistics from CFEs all over the world last year, the Report’s significance has grown to include even more applicable statistics for fraud-fighters worldwide. The information contained in this Report is invaluable to those who seek to deter, detect, prevent or simply understand the global economic impact of occupational fraud.
Call it an early New Year’s resolution: contribute to the industry’s most insightful tool in the fight against fraud by sharing your expertise in the 2011 Global Fraud Survey. Also, to thank you for your time, you will receive two hours of CPE credit and the option to view an exclusive webinar with the survey results next year.
