Kroll commissioned The Economist Intelligence Unit to conduct a worldwide survey on fraud and its effect on business during 2008.
A total of 890 senior executives took part in this survey. A third of the respondents were based in North and South America, 30% in Asia-Pacific, just over a quarter in Europe and 11% in the Middle East and Africa. Ten industries were covered, with no fewer than 50 respondents drawn from each industry. The highest number of respondents came from the professional services industry (16%) followed by financial services (13%) and technology, media and telecoms (11%). A total of 42% of the companies polled had global annual revenues in excess of US$1 billion.
