    Inside you will find ten articles, including content from the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (part of MI5) on insider threat and some interesting new research on how fraud and corruption can be better prevented through effective messaging. There are also two pieces which are stark reminders of the human cost of fraud. In an article by Crimestoppers we learn about the theft of electricity and gas, including a tragic case which resulted in the loss of life. The journal also highlights the work that National Trading Standards have done to prevent people from falling victim to scams through their award-winning ‘Scam Marshals’ programme.

    The latest results from the KPMG Fraud Barometer have just been published and cover January to December 2020. The Barometer measures alleged fraud cases with losses of £100,000 or more reaching the UK courts and is the longest-running study of its kind, collating stats for over 30 years. The bi-annual Fraud Barometer identifies the latest fraud trends and patterns affecting the UK economy which helps us remain alert to new threats and respond to fraud risks in an appropriate and proactive manner. The drop in both the value and volume of fraud cases, is not reflective of a downturn in economic crime, but rather fallout following the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions on the courts. It is important for individuals and organisations to remain vigilant in their fight against fraud.

    Transparency International’s 2020 report, Exporting Corruption, rates the performance of 47 leading global exporters, including 43 countries signatories to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Anti-Bribery Convention, in cracking down on bribery of foreign public officials by companies operating abroad.
