Fraud and theft are rife in the public sector in South Africa as we all know. What few do know is that this culture of fraud, previously the arena of politics, now permeates into the business world. South Africa has a culture of fraud.
In a recent survey, 70% of companies reported some form of employee theft. A lot of companies do not like to announce fraud and theft within their walls so this number is likely to be even higher.
With cyber crime, people moving and no loyalty to company, everyone is under threat. Leaders have to stand up and start doing something. Somewhat like the recent protests in South Africa, we all have to make a stand against this sense of lawlessness. If something is not done soon it is a matter of not years but months before South Africa is the new Zimbabwe.
We have some monitoring tools and review processes that can help your company detect and prevent fraud so please feel free to get in touch to discuss your needs.
