    The Next Normal: Preparing for a Post-Pandemic Fraud Landscape

    With COVID-19 vaccinations being administered as quickly as possible and countries beginning to lift restrictions put into place to limit the virus’s spread, many organizations around the world are preparing for a post-pandemic reality. However, shifts in business operations, economic impacts and changes in consumer behavior due to the pandemic will likely remain significant factors affecting entities — and their fraud risks and anti-fraud programs — going forward.

    To assess how organizations are preparing for the “next” normal, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), in partnership with Grant Thornton, surveyed anti-fraud professionals around the globe regarding the current and expected effects of COVID-19 on the fraud landscape. We hope that the information highlighted in this report, Next Normal: Preparing for a Post-Pandemic Fraud Landscape, will help you understand how fraud risk is evolving and the importance of staying ever-vigilant in protecting against its harms in the wake of the coronavirus.

    Anti-Fraud Technology Benchmarking Report

    Which technologies are most effective in helping organizations manage their fraud risk? How are organizations successfully harnessing the power of data and technology as part of their anti-fraud programs? The answers to these and other questions can be crucial in gaining management buy-in and successfully implementing new anti-fraud technologies. Consequently, the ACFE conducted a benchmarking study to help organizations understand what anti-fraud technologies their peers are using and to assist in guiding future adoption of anti-fraud technologies. We hope the information contained in the Anti-Fraud Technology Benchmarking Report helps organizations effectively evaluate anti-fraud technologies so that they can remain one step ahead of potential fraud perpetrators.

    The ACFE has collaborated with the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) to produce the Fraud Risk Management Guide (FRMG) to help organizations focus their anti-fraud efforts. The ACFE also created a website to host interactive tools to complement the FRMG and assist organizations in applying its principles.
