The Impact of Crime on the Private Sector and Business
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
"The private sector is the part of a country's economic system that is run by individuals and companies, rather than the government. Most private sector organizations are run with the intention of making profit."
- Shop lifting/ Theft

- Cyber crime

- Arson

- Vandalism

- Corporate crime/White collar crime

- Fraud

Different types of crime affecting the private sector
Impact of Shoplifting/Theft
"Crimes carried out by means of computers or the internet"
(includes hacking, viruses, phishing, spamming and identity theft)

Impact of Cyber Crime
34/43 English and Welsh police forces reported an increase in shoplifting by around 6% a year (2014)
Shoplifting represented the biggest problem to UK retailers, accounting for 36% of total losses, or £1.224bn. However, theft by employees was also a major concern, accounting for 33% of the overall figure. (2013)
Small businesses lose approx. £13,500 per year, each, from shoplifting
Over 2/3 businesses are victims of crime
Retail generates 5% of UK GDP
Highest rate of shop theft for over 9 years (retail crime survey 2013)
Direct cost of retail crime- £511 million (retail crime survey 2013)
1/10 shop thefts reported to the police in 2012
Theft of a $2.00 item from a store operating on a 10% profit margin requires the sale of $20.00 in merchandise to make up for the loss. Supermarkets and other retailers operating on low margins of 1% must sell $500.00 in merchandise, just to cover the cost of a $5.00 stolen item.
Loss prevention very costly
Doesn't just impact the business: it is estimated that every consumer in the US and Canada pay's a minimum of $250 each year because of crimes against merchants.
Across 6 countries and 234 multinational companies, nearly all had been victims of a malware attack and 57% experienced distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. (Ponemon Institute report 2013)
Companies were breached 1.3 times a week at an annual cost of around $7.2 million. (Ponemon Institute report 2013)
February 2014- credentials for 360 million accounts and 1.25 billion email addresses leaked in data breach- result of attacks on Google, Yahoo and Microsoft- to name a few. Included a haul of nearly 105m records.
Cyber Espionage "The greatest transfer of wealth in history"- Director General of the US National Security Agency, Keith Alexander.
Over £270 billion- cost of cybercrime globally.
£18 billion to £27 billion a year- estimated cost to the UK.
54% of total cyber attacks targeted the US- 2013. Nearly half originated in China, followed by the US (19%) and Canada (10%)
Impact: loss of business intelligence and intellectual property, increased security costs, disrupt workflow and damage business' reputation.
Companies that report major cyber attacks suffer a 1-5% drop in stock value.
Impact of Corporate Crime/White collar crime
"Any criminal activity for financial advantage that occurs during the course of business"
Includes: Embezzlement, Healthcare fraud, Ambulance services, Insurance fraud, Mail fraud etc

Endanger employees through unsafe working conditions, injure consumers because of dangerous products, cause problems in the community.

Highly under-reported

One of the fastest-growing types of crime in the world

Forgery and fraud is costing Britain £14 billion a year
Businesses benefiting from crime
Private security services, surveillance, alarm and CCTV equipment providers, private prison companies
Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) saw revenue increase by more than 500% in the last 2 decades
In 2012 CCA offered 48 governors to buy and operate their state-funded prisons, the offer had an "occupancy requirement"- a clause requiring the state keep the prisons 90% full at all times
42/62 contracts for private prisons operating in the USA at local and state level included occupancy requirements that the prisons must be kept between 80-100% full
In 2002 the Premier Custodial Group, the UK's largest private prison operator's combined turnover for all prison and correctional services contracts was £127.4m
Case study: London Riots
Compensation claims covering damage and loss totaled to £200-300m
£74m = Policing costs in London
1/4 of businesses closed early during the riots
1/4 of businesses added security during the riots.
Financial losses to businesses were £10,000- £15,000 at the lower end, averaged at £50,000-£100,000 and were between half a million and a million pounds at the upper end.
83% businesses believe the riots damaged London's reputation
