Why should you attend?

Fraud is a growing concern across Asia Pacific. In a recent 2019 APAC focused study, out of 700 APAC business surveyed, 67% of businesses reported an increased concern for fraud loses, compared to the prior year. 50% of businesses surveyed stated they have seen a significant increase in fraud losses over the past 12 months, with fraud losses particularly prominent in Australia, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam.  

The fast-growing adoption of technology and internet penetration across the region, makes organisations and individuals more vulnerable than ever. 

With the average overall costs of fraud being 1.75% of revenue for businesses across the region, fraud and security professionals must ensure they are abreast of the latest trends shaping the fraud landscape in APAC and beyond.

It amplified that all industries including, government, banking and private sectors need to come together to combat this issue together. The APAC Forum was a great platform to help commence this journey. I will be back next year. Thank You”
