The Guidance for Best Practices to Prevent Equipment Theft

With the following list of practices the ERA provides effective ways to prevent theft of your equipment. Equipment theft is a growing problem across Europe with an estimated annual cost of E1.5 billion to the rental, construction and agricultural industries.

  • For the equipment rental industry alone, ERA estimates the value of stolen equipment to exceed E500 million per annum.
  • This figure includes around 30,000 units of heavy equipment (3 tonnes and above) and estimated figures of 300,000 units below 3 tonnes.
  • The rate of recovery of stolen equipment varies widely depending on the country, and the security counter measures deployed. The recovery rate is much lower for equipment when compared to the recovery rate for other vehicles, for example cars.

The ERA recommends that you follow the practices and advice outlined within this document to protect your equipment in the best possible way.

External and internal fraud threats - essential reading for fraud and financial crime strategist.

With almost one in every two crimes a fraud or cybercrime*, individuals are more likely to be a victim of this crime than any other. There has never been a more urgent time for organisations to be alert to both the external and internal fraud threat.

Through Cifas, our members contributed over 325,000 cases of fraud to the national picture, the highest number ever recorded to our databases: the National Fraud Database and the Internal Fraud Database.

In this year's Fraudscape report, for the first time ever, we have brought together frauds recorded by Cifas members to the National Fraud Database and the Internal Fraud Database into a single document: making Fraudscape the only publication of its kind providing this analysis of internal and external fraud trends in the UK.
