Many small to medium sized companies do not properly address fraud-related risk because these organizations do not have the resources needed to mitigate this risk or because owners or those in top level management underestimate the scope of the issue.

All organizations, regardless of size, must be aware of the risks associated with intentional fraudulent acts and know that a significant and effective fraud scheme could even present going concern issues for some entities.
