At Risk:  

Business in a World of Litigation, Fraud and Deceit / Volume 6, No. 1


Big headlines of corporate fraud, abuse and malfeasance catch the eye and send warning signs to, and cause reactions from, legislators, regulators and commentators. New laws, new processes and new restrictions attempt to reign in corporate conduct of concern. While one can debate the ultimate effectiveness of legislative and regulatory revisions (especially in light of costs to comply), there is no question that corporate fraud is not stamped out by such actions.

Sailing below the public radar, however, is the everyday toll of “little” frauds; those that do not grab broad attention but can have a profound effect on any organization’s culture and finances.  Examples of such illicit activities can be found in many companies.  Whether within accounting, treasury, procurement, marketing or payroll departments, fraud will be a very unwelcome event that can upset the equilibrium of even the strongest organization.

In this issue of At Risk, we explore a number of important topics related to everyday fraud and its prevention, detection and investigation:


  • Procurement Fraud: Are You Prepared?
  • Gaining Access: Using Legal Tools to Get Information
  • Whistle-Blower Protections: From Boos and Jeers to Bounties and Cheers
  • Beyond the Pursuit of Justice: Employers’ Reactions to Fraud
