Corporations can be targeted by fraudsters online through hacking, account compromise
or online extortion. Employee fraud may also be an issue in terms of abuse of expense policies and corporate credit card accounts. More serious crimes are money laundering and embezzlement.
Action Fraud offers comprehensive information regarding online and financial fraud. Corporations can learn how to better protect their computer networks and how to identify the signs of employee fraud.
Frauds against large corporations can result in attempted extortion, financial losses and can threaten the long-term viability of the business. Compliance, finance and ICT managers are most likely to recognise the first signs of fraudulent activities within their business. If there is a concern that a corporation has been targeted by fraudsters these can be reported to Action Fraud.
