How to Stop Fraud with Tamper-Evident Digital Signatures

Posted by Emily Maxie on Thu, Oct 30, 2014

It seems like we’re always hearing about another business falling victim to tampering or fraud. It’s easy to focus on outside threats, but don’t ignore the people on your payroll. Just last week, the SEC fined Wells Fargo $5 million for a case where one of their employees tampered with a document. The employee was fired, but the financial damage was already done.

The Cost of Document Tampering and Fraud

The average organization loses 5% of its revenue to internal fraud. What’s worse, more than half of the victim organizations never recover their losses, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).

The typical fraud loss for small businesses is 28% higher than for companies with more than 100 employees, the ACFE reports. The median fraud loss for small businesses is $154,000, while companies with more than 100 employees see a median loss of $120,000.

The top industries at risk for fraud are:

  1. Banking & Financial Services
  2. Government & Public Administration
  3. Manufacturing
  4. Healthcare
  5. Education
