The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners reported in 2016 that the median fraud loss for businesses with less than 100 employees is $150,000. Due to the available amount of limited resources to invest for fighting against fraudulent practices, it is the small business undertakings that are especially vulnerable to such practices perpetrated by both employees as well as third parties.
