Global and Swiss Economic Crime Survey 2014
We are pleased to inform you about the launch of the 2014 PwC Global and Swiss Economic Crime Survey. Since its inception in 2003, this bi-annual survey has been one of the premier thought leadership publications on economic crime.
The aim of this survey is to assess corporate attitudes to fraud in the current economic environment, particularly in relation to incidents of corruption/bribery, money laundering and/or breaches of competition laws that have received increased public scrutiny. In addition, the survey seeks to assess continuing developments in the world of cybercrime.
Highlights of the Swiss survey 2011 were:
- Cybercrime is on the rise and was the second most common crime as reported by our respondents (20%).
- 54% of the respondents think that the threat of cybercrime is external to the organisation.
- Organisations appear to be largely unprepared when dealing with cybercrime incidents despite heightened fears.
- 41% of respondents received no cybercrime related training in the last 12 months.
- With 80%, asset misappropriation is the highest ranking economic crime.
- 40% of economic crime in Switzerland was committed by someone within the organisation.
- Only 46% of respondents ended the business relationship with the external fraudster.
