It is critical that companies respond quickly and efficiently to fraud investigations, especially when considering their time-sensitive nature. This includes alleged or suspected fraud, misconduct, or other improprieties such as violations of laws, regulations, or organisational policies.
Businesses often lack the right resources and/or skills to proficiently conduct a prompt, cost-effective, and objective investigation. Every year, fraud and misconduct siphon billions of dollars from companies worldwide, damaging reputations and putting public trust at risk. Company boards, as well as management at all levels of an organisation, are therefore under mandatory pressure to get to the bottom of any case of fraud as quickly as possible. Organisations can minimise and indemnify any losses in court if a fraud investigation is carried out in a timely and appropriate manner.
