E&Y: Increased anti-fraud efforts in West Midlands

Measures come as fraud grows in sophistication

Companies in the
West Midlands
are strengthening their corporate defences to protect themselves against fraud,
according Ernst &
Young’s
newly appointed Fraud Investigation and Dispute Services (FIDS)
partner, Jonathan Middup.

Middup said he had seen a steady increase in the number of clients
implementing preventative anti-fraud systems and controls.

‘There has been a definite shift in corporate attitudes towards tackling
fraud within the last two years, and we have seen companies giving much more
structure to their fraud risk approach.

‘The Birmingham team has experienced a significant increase in the number of
clients seeking advice on anti fraud measures designed to protect their
businesses from fraudsters,’ he added.
