In a survey of 100 finance directors and managing directors, 23 said war in Iraq or global terrorism posed the greatest threat to their business. Computer failure and fraud and theft were the next biggest worries for businesses.

A total of 20 companies said significant computer failure was their biggest concern, while another 20 cited the threat of fraud and theft as their top concern.

The same number of those polled considered an international terrorist attack on their company to be an equal threat as a fire in their building.
