Crime and Fraud Risk Assessments

An effective risk identification assessment includes an assessment of incentives, pressures and opportunities for individuals and organisations to commit fraud.

It is today clear to all responsible private and public institutions that security policies should be institutionalised and managed to provide effective and economically efficient directives for risk mitigation. Policies should be based upon a formal security stance that is determined by management. In general, a security stance of 'least privilege' to potential perpetrators can be used in most commercial, financial, Internet, and other public/private environments.

Crime & Fraud Risk Assessments

The relevant security policies normally direct the relevant institutions regarding the security and or risk mitigation measures that should be put in place to protect the management, employees, other relevant stakeholders (such as clients) as well as the property of companies against security risk and threats. To protect confidential data, for example, the security policy of an institution could determine that only specific categories of staff would have access to data defined as confidential
