Managing fraud should be fundamental to effective supply chain risk management. Companies must
maintain continuity in the face of supply chain fraud which can average about five percent of total
revenue. One in seven companies will not fully recover. Minimal research outside accounting has
effectively defined supply chain fraud, where it occurs, or identified best practices in mitigating and
managing fraud in complex supply chain networks. Global supply chains are particularly vulnerable to
fraud because of their complexity, wide dispersion, and lack of transparency, thereby making effective
fraud control problematic. Internal controls are ill-prepared to protect complex global supply chains.
