2013 AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey

The Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) conducted a survey to spotlight the type and frequency of payments fraud experienced by organizations in 2012. The survey was a follow-up to similar AFP surveys conducted in each of the previous three years to measure the prevalence of payments fraud and the weapons that organizations deploy to defend against it.

This year's survey sought to reveal the gaps in payment systems defenses that resulted in financial liability for some organizations and the fraud control measures that other organizations use to prevent financial losses from payments fraud.

The survey was also designed to focus attention on the security measures that organizations are adopting to protect online payments and cash management data.
