Employees are no longer able to obtain a signature or a visa quickly and easily. The important instrument of social control is only partially effective. In otherwise lively office floors and factories, life has virtually come to a standstill; only a few employees are still on site. This crisis also creates a multitude of "dark" corners. Those risks have to be tackled. Nevertheless fears about one's own economic survival also increase the risk that a company will become the victim of white-collar crime by its employees, third parties or business partners.
In concrete terms, the risk of economic delinquency and "non-compliance" by these three groups could also occur in your company, for example, as follows:
- Fraudsters who, on behalf of the Chief Executive Officer, instruct the accounting or finance department to initiate a payment to a fraudulent account
- Manipulation of financial reporting, for example to conceal an over-indebtedness according to Art. 725 OR
- Decentralised working, the associated weakening of the internal control system and the crisis-related emergency mode can lead to an increase in embezzlement (e.g. through the feed-in of fictitious service invoices or excessive expense claims)
