The Globalization of Insurance Fraud Study

How ready is your organization to avoid the damage caused by global insurance fraud? In the Globalization of Insurance Fraud Study, by The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud in partnership with IBM and Luxoft, we get at the key facts and what they mean for insurers.


The study surveyed financial crimes experts, data security analysts, government regulators, insurance professionals and others to better understand how anti-fraud experts from around the world are dealing with international fraud rings. Fraud fighters — professionals tasked with investigating and prosecuting insurance fraud — in North America were found to be the least prepared for threats from abroad. The study surveyed fraud fighters in 33 countries across North America, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Africa.
