A changing society

Threat landscapes

Corporate crime is not a recent revelation, however its faces have evolved with time. Specialized fraud analysis, asset tracing, abuse and misconduct identification, are the initial steps in building a case for organized corporate crime.

Setting codes of ethics, employee training on company ethics and policies, maintaining secure financial systems and hardening the security layers can help prevent breaches. As part of responsive action, external and internal audits can be undertaken along with risk and vulnerability assessment. With advances in technologies and the communication of information, more sophisticated techniques and schemes are continuously being created to meet these goals.

Occupational Fraud & Abuse

Not so uncommon

Misappropriation of assets is no fresh revelation to business owners. Nearly 5% of annual organizational revenues have been reported lost due to fraud. The deliberate misuse of one's occupational resources or assets for personal enrichment qualifies as occupational fraud. Asset misappropriation, corruption and fraudulent financial reporting are the categories of crime although usually there is a broad overlap of the three.

Growing victim numbers

Deceit is an integral part of human nature; it only unveils in specific circumstances. This explains that no environment is safe from fraud and frauds occur across a wide range of industries. Private companies suffer most damages, while public and government stand next in succession. Fear of public disrepute usually prevents companies from speaking up but that does not mean that fraud doesn't hurt them. It is an incessant evil that needs appropriate risk assessment, prevention and management.

Perpetrators

Understanding of the fraudulent mindset allows for appropriate prevention strategies. Background screen by reputed and professional companies can assist, although is not evidence for prediction of such behaviors. Perpetrators are infrequently criminals hence identification is not easy; these individuals are also better understood as opportunistic 'trust violators' who make use of appropriate openings under financial pressure, and rationalize their act. It is important to know that owners, managers as well as employees are all capable of the crime. Understanding and studying the demographic and behavior trends may offer some direction in the process of perpetrator identification.

Need to act

Deterrence is the most sure shot way for organizations to maximize profitability by limiting preventable losses. This requires proactive measures to identify factors that promote fraud and hence prevent it. Appropriate measures when it has been detected also for part of prevention of the repetition of such events. If a response process is not in place, dormant perpetrators may be motivated to repeat such acts. Thorough background evaluation is the first step of the prevention process. Setting codes of ethics, employee training on company ethics and policies, maintaining secure financial systems and hardening the security layers can help prevent breaches. As part of responsive action, external and internal audits can be undertaken. With advances in technologies and the communication of information, more sophisticated fraud techniques and schemes are continuously being created.

Security Consultants and Investigators

Collaborative approach

Security is not the responsibility of a security company or the organization alone. It is a collaborative effort that requires technical and professional expertise of a reputed security service along with an acceptance of security into the organization's culture. Threats have no fixed face; they could range from workplace violence and fraud, to terrorism and property damage. Organizations need to reappraise their views on security and consult with experts in the field to understand and restructure their security protocols.

Security Network

Today security needs involve integration and interconnection between the different components of the 'security network'. Security requires teams with unified communication systems and relay of information between sources to assure entirety of safety.

We also assess premise physical stability to comment on evacuation procedures and provide building maintenance and safety advice where needed.

Security Program Audits & Management Reviews

Need based approach

In order to reach fitting outcomes one must set appropriate goals. Security needs cannot be fulfilled unless security risks have been assessed and strategies are in place. This requires integration and interconnection between leading components of the security network, which include the provider, and recipient. By identifying organization goals, we aim to align these with the customized security strategy. No security system can be successful without this fine-tuning.

Audit for all

Perhaps no organization needs a security audit as much as a newcomer to the secure world. Likewise for organizations that wish to better their current program, there ought to be a baseline from which we can draw out security plans, assess the wellness of existing infrastructure and target improvement. The diverse components like people, processes, equipment, technology, resources and training; all need to be aligned with the strategic goals of the organization with the assistance of the security provider. Audits and management reviews are the answer to the same.

A needs assessment can allow executive management to gauge the risks, opportunities and options to consider in their program's design and implementation.

Security Vulnerability & Risk Assessments

Need to quantify risk

Vulnerabilities are weak links in the security network. Information, energy, and communication systems, as well as people, infrastructure and assets, are all vulnerable to threat. Risk analysis is about investigating risk, understanding its impact and finding ways around it. This would require a study around the cause and consequences of the threat to the priced asset, be it a person, property, merchandise or information. Vulnerability assessment concerns itself with reducing consequences related to the risk, thereby improving future impacts.

Americorp International Group's promise

State of the art methods of risk and vulnerability assessment involve cataloging of a system's assets and resources along with a rank order of importance to evaluate the pricelessness of these assets. Subsequently a detailed evaluation of potential threats that could damage these resources is performed. An ideal plan for security can then be established by eliminating the most serious vulnerabilities for the most valuable resources. This allows appropriate allocation of investment towards the most priced assets. The complexity of interactions involved here are tremendous, hence we use flow charts and diagrams to depict different systems that could interact to generate risk; and then suggest ways to mitigate them.

No one is shielded

Perhaps no organization needs risk assessment as much as a newcomer to the secure world. Likewise for organizations that wish to better their current program, there ought to be a baseline from which we can draw out security plans, assess the wellness of existing infrastructure and target improvement by reducing weak links in the security chain. The diverse components like people, processes, equipment, technology, resources and training; all need to be aligned with the strategic goals of the organization with the assistance of the security provider. Careful and deliberate risk assessment reviews are the answer to the same.

Workplace Violence Prevention Programs

Violence and the role of Americorp International Group

Private security has gained an ever-expanding role in the prevention and mitigation of workplace violence. Violence is an act of individuals, thus no space that involves humanity can ever be shielded from the possibility of vicious acts of humans against one another. Committed to the wellness and protection of assets, SGI also extends this obligation to supporting violence prevention measures at the workplace.

Collaboration in mitigation

Several factors contribute to the buildup of emotional unrest that culminates in a verbal or physically violent act. Studies have shown that employee opinions about their workplace are significantly impacted by their personal experiences relating to violence and these are surprisingly large in number. The involvement of leaders is mandatory in placing safety as a top priority. If an employee feels that disciplinary action is lacking, it reflects negatively on company ethics. A multi disciplinary collaborative effort between security, human resources, health departments, legal operations, facility managers and the community at large, can be a promising effort at delineating roles and establishing a prevention and response strategy.

Urgency to act

Violence at work is damaging for those involved, is negative for fellow employee morale and is destructive to the organization's reputation. Organizations bear the duty to care, nurture and promote wellness among employees, thus promotion of violence prevention has become a forefront responsibility today.

Risk assessment and reduction

Knowing the enemy is the first step in fighting it. All work related activities have their innate potential for conflict and these must be evaluated and minimized for optimal employee outcomes. By identifying the threat, controls can be set in place. Most measures would include but are not limited to:

  • Records of violence at the place
  • Working conditions of employees
  • Employee background screening
  • Detailed administrative practices
  • Employee surveys and opinions

Risk assessment is a highly personalized and individual task. Personal behavioral factors as well as environmental work factors can contribute to the level of unrest that culminates in an individual's violent gesture or act. Once we are aware of risks we can work to minimize them.

Prevention

This is the primary objective; prevention has always been better than cure. A thorough risk assessment offers direction towards possibilities and probabilities for preventive intervention. Organizations lay out specific violence prevention policies that ought to empower and not threaten employees. Some of these may include:

  • Description of reportable behaviors and acts
  • Clear process of reporting (anonymous too)
  • Laying down codes of conduct while at work
  • Descriptions of penalties for non compliance
  • Sharp narrative of responsibilities and roles

Just like the assessment of risk varies in different settings, the enforcement of policies cannot be rigid and non-conforming. Violent behaviors are a culmination of pre violent manners. The tasks, activities, interactions and exchanges that culminate in violence are the key target in breaking the process. All the risks need to be carefully integrated in the prevention strategy.

Watchful eye

Vigilant eyes and efficient ears are the vanguard in capturing warning signs. Presence of conflict, evidence of substance use at work, vocalization of personal problems, verbal or indirect threats, as well as referral to a firearm ought to set off an alarm. Any change in behavior from the usual or visible signs of behavioral troubles like distractibility, anger or restlessness should alert the response team to take steps. It is imprudent to underestimate the explosive potential of a violent individual. Steps to be taken in such circumstances include:

  • Training all the staff in conflict management
  • Vigilant managers to observe subordinates
  • Wellness coaching and anger management
  • Modifying threatening tasks and activities
  • Educating staff on risk avoidance measures

Some jobs are stressful, some people have low thresholds, sometimes the timing is perfect to accommodate a blend to promote and explosive outburst which may often be unintentional but eventually gets out of hand. The use of pre contact measures is as essential part of prevention.

Responsiveness

Once the enemy has struck there is no better measure than to fight the battle and safeguard the territory. It is important to take immediate measures to negate the negative impact of violence incidents at the workplace. These are better understood as post contact measures and include:

  • Immediate and prompt personnel action
  • Documenting and recording of incidents
  • Protocols for action in such scenarios
  • Awareness for all levels of employees
  • Unambiguous containment measures

Employees often do not know their rights and ways to respond to such situations. It decreases their morale to witness or be subjected to such events. When they are aware of organization policies and their own rights in the system, they feel empowered to take essential steps with preparedness. Specialized guidance and training for all levels of employees needs to be implemented by qualified instructors.

Recovery

All effective corporate employee wellness initiatives must involve presence of behavior health personnel, coaches, counselors and supportive services. The role of an empathizing individual cannot be underestimated here, after all it is a personal and threatening experience that has occurred at the workplace and the employers bear responsibility for the employee. It is important to facilitate closure and make the employees move on. Post incident analysis is a mandate in these situations and can be well conducted by a trained and responsive security team.

  • Appropriate and transformational leadership
  • Respect and empathy for everyone involved
  • Shielding employees from violent sources
  • Individualized response plans for incidents
  • Dealing with ethical and legal implications

This would call for detailed review and the organization ought to be prepared with specific role descriptions and systems in place to respond to every step of the process of bringing the situation in control. The private security expertise in every step of the way in guiding and formulating the approach is quintessential.
