Risk solution provider Kroll released the 10th annual edition of its Global Fraud and Risk Report on Jan. 22, revealing insights into the current state of cyber-security and fraud risks. The 47-page report is based on responses from 540 senior executives who work in different industries around the world. Among the high-level findings in the report is that incidents of fraud were up in 2017. Eighty-four percent of respondents said their organizations were victims of fraud last year, up from 82 percent in the 2016 report. And for the first time in the 10-year history of the report, information theft was identified as the top fraud attack.
