The results of completed investigations in combination with the continual analysis of commodity pricing, scientific samples, demand and supply is undertaken to determine potential targets for fraud and risk levels.

A Supply Chain Vulnerability Assessment is an important step to understanding whether you might have a problem with fraud within your supply chain.
