The Threat to Your Business
Statistics and crime studies indicate that corporate crime and common business abuses cost U.S. companies (alone) more than $400 billion annually in losses from their bottom lines. Although theft and fraud have been considered as crimes perpetrated by criminals from outside a company, trends indicate the contrary as most losses (as much as 75%) occur internally. In fact, internal theft is one of the biggest threats to business today.
Surveys indicate that a vast majority of employees in any company regularly take things for personal use. While it is recognized that much of this company owned property is primarily administrative equipment, more and more of it is technology based, such as computers and, In today’s environment where technology is frequently updated, it is not difficult to imagine a rank and file wage earner with access to proprietary information downloading millions of dollars of corporate information onto a multiple gigabyte storage device.
Time is something else that is stolen when an employee takes advantage of a small innocuous injury and turns it into several weeks or months of time off with full pay and benefits.
