Is Fraud Increasing in the UK? SPSS Research Report

I’m not sure what to make of this report out of the UK conducted by SPSS/IBM.  It seems to be focused towards the IT side of business but makes a claim early on that there has been “around a 16 per cent overall growth in fraud throughout the UK” during this recession.  But, when you look at the statistics, only 12% of surveyed companies cited an increase in fraud while “82% asserted its constancy.”

As I have asserted in the past, it is important how we present our business case around our function.  We cannot lead with questionable claims and statistics if we want to be taken credibly.  Take a look at this report here and see if you can make more sense of it that I can…
