The results of that survey are summarized in a report titled “Driving Ethical Growth—New Markets, New Challenges” (Ernst & Young, 11th Global Fraud Survey). You can find this report by doing an Internet search on the title, or go to,_new_challenges:_11th_Global_Fraud_Survey/$FILE/EY_11th_Global_Fraud_Survey.pdf.
