    How smart analytics can stop procurement fraud

    Procurement fraud can emerge in any organisation that fails to acknowledge and address it. This is why procurement and other forms of internal fraud are such a menace. Many organisations are in denial over the scale of internal fraud, leading to belated investigations that fail to uncover its true extent. While fraud is primarily an external threat, half of all cases are assisted by employees. It is time for businesses to unmask the enemy within.

    The Cyber Security Breaches Survey is a quantitative and qualitative survey of UK businesses and charities. For this latest release, the quantitative survey was carried out in winter 2018 and the qualitative element in early 2019. It helps these organisations to understand the nature and significance of the cyber security threats they face, and what others are doing to stay secure. It also supports the Government to shape future policy in this area.

    The HMICFRS conclude the law enforcement response to fraud is disjointed and ineffective with no national strategy for tackling fraud. Police forces have therefore developed a range of different responses. We found some examples of good practice but, taken as a whole and given the scale of fraud, not enough is being done. When it exists, good practice is not always disseminated or widely adopted.

    This report, which was sponsored by Tenable and conducted by Ponemon Institute, reveals that a lack of visibility into the attack surface, inadequate security staffing and reliance on manual processes undermine operational technology (OT) sector organizations’ stated requirements to protect OT and IoT infrastructure from downtime. The report said 37% reported a “significant disruption” to business processes caused by malware, 33% reported a cyber-attack caused “significant downtime”, 23% reported that they had been hit by nation state attacks and 60% said disruptive cyber-attacks are among the threats they are most worried about.

    Seeking active and informed consent must underpin all our conversations to ensure the internet is a safe and positive place for children and young people. Whether that is sharing photos of our friends or family, or how our privacy or data is managed – the issue of consent is key. This report is just the beginning of looking into this issue and in many ways poses more questions than provides answers. What we do hope is that it will kick-start a deeper conversation on how we can both support and work with young people, empowering them to take control of their online lives, so that they can identify and agree when we should ask for permission, know how to ask for it, and how to say yes or no. This is a crucial aspect of the world of social media and internet services, and these key learnings are not just for young people.

    This Update highlights the Government sustained efforts to tackle corruption particularly through the range and depth of action that has been taken both at home and abroad. Commitment and effectiveness is demonstrated by the UK’s strong performance in the recent independent review of our systems for combatting money laundering and terrorist financing undertaken by the Financial Action Taskforce. The Serious and Organised Crime Strategy was launched backed by funding of at least £48 million in 2019 to 2020 to further ramp up law enforcement capabilities in tackling illicit finance. Partnership with business and civil society will be central to success.
