Another story of employee theft

We've blogged in the past about the importance of protecting your business assets with a thorough and comprehensive security analysis. Private investigators can help you conduct a security analysis in a variety of ways. One particular strategy, which is something a security and alarm company will not do,  is to conduct a pretexting or undercover investigation in which the investigator tests employees' willingness to consider or engage in theft. Of course, the investigator will also check your security set up in terms of your surveillance, security system, and potential compromises in your filing systems.

It's important to be diligent against security compromises and employee commitment to your operating goals. Here's a fairly recent example to remind you of the need to keep a private investigator on retainer, especially if you operate a warehouse or transportation company: Amazon warehouse worker stole $160,000 in electronics.
