Main theme 2018: Societal disruption
The main theme of the Fraud Film Festival 2018 is ‘Societal Disruption’. Half of all companies are affected by economic crime and although general statistics show a decrease in crime in the Netherlands, the number of fraud and cybercrime cases are increasing. Fraud is an especially disruptive crime, which weakens or abuses and undermines the very fabric of society. This leads to a deterioration of its foundations and / or the legitimacy of the system that protects it. This type of crime is often committed by criminal organizations and accompanied by violence, threats and intimidation.
Crime that undermines the fabric of our society affects us all. But how do we approach this problem as a society? By bringing together governmental organizations, private companies and the public and by working together!
