Modern SAP systems, although robust, can be vulnerable to internal fraud and threats. A classic example is Internal Fraud, which organizations are wary of even today. A survey done by KPMG in 2010 shows that a vast majority of the 200 CEOs who were questioned suppose that internal fraud is one of the most important risks for their organizations. A detailed study by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) spanning through the years 2006-2010, noted an average of 7% annual losses due to internal frauds. Speaking in terms of losses in revenue: in 2010 alone, an average loss for a single incident constituted a whopping $ 1.7 million.
