Danielle references the 2020 ACFE Report to the Nations as a resource for information and data, which companies can use when finding the best fit for their environment. She asserts that the second-best control is based on:

  • Broad applicability to small to large company (and not-for-profits).
  • Ability to execute on a test basis for low cost and ability to scale up.
  • Extra unintended benefits usually derived for operations from its existence.
  • It is a proactive data monitoring/analysis program.
