    Shows a growth overall in the amount of fraud that has been detected and prevented. This shows the commitment we are making as an industry to better protect ourselves and our customers.

There are risks associated with any whistleblowing system (particularly one that allows anonymous reporting), the main risk being that employees might abuse the system and make false reports.
