PwC’s Belgian Economic Crime Survey 2014

PwC Belgium is pleased to present the results for the Belgian market drawn from its biennial Global Economic Crime Survey. This year, 68 organisations of various sizes and active in different industries took part in the survey.

Probably most striking is the fact that in the past 24 months, 50% of the Belgian companies surveyed have faced one or more significant cases of economic crime. Furthermore, the impact of economic crime is often underestimated, as the proportion of incidents detected and investigated is limited.
