Hurricane season is upon us and for businesses that may pose more than just transportation headaches and supply chain disruptions. Mark Pearson and Larry Kivett, members of Deloitte's supply chain forensics team, are sounding the warning that stormy weather can bring with it supply chain fraud.

While some companies are bringing their legal, risk, compliance, finance and internal audit teams together to conduct supply chain fraud risk assessments and batten down the hatches against fraud, many more aren't.

In this week's podcast, Pearson and Kivett discuss the connection between weather disasters and fraud, offering advice for how companies can shore up their risk mitigation efforts.
