It is a hard truth that sometimes it may be the most trusted and senior staff in an organisation who use their system knowledge to work around security and set up insidious, well-concealed fraud systems. The impact of fraud to a business can go beyond the money or stock that’s been taken. Customers and investors may lose faith in the management and employee morale may fall. In the MENA region many large business organisations do not purchase specialised crime cover, relying on basic property insurance policy. However, these may not be extensive covers and could leave them exposed to several risks with no cover for stock or goods, uselessly-low limits or sharp restrictions on discovery periods. Crime insurance from AIG not only provides comprehensive protection from the effects of dishonesty, but it also enables businesses to demonstrate their commitment to effective risk controls.
