Global profiles of the fraudster: White-collar crime – present and future

Global profiles
KPMG analysis of 596 fraudsters member firms investigated and the constantly changing nature of fraud and the fraudster.

The changing nature of business has created new opportunities, but also new risks and potential threats including:


  • the increasing sophistication of fraud, organized crime and terrorism more complex legislation and regulations, some with increasing extra-territorial reach
  • developing challenges around technology
  • complex cross-border disputes
  • pitfalls from expanding into emerging markets
  • dependencies on unfamiliar business partners more complex supply and distribution channels
  • theft and misuse of intellectual property.

Organizations that effectively monitor and swiftly respond to potentially damaging situations such as these are better placed to deal with them quickly and successfully, while reducing adverse financial, reputational or operational impact.
