When most people think of loss prevention, they may envision the security department at a retail store. Theft and loss certainly is a major concern for retail businesses, but companies of all types and sizes should make loss prevention a high priority.
Executive Briefing – Leaders Guide to Managing Workplace Fraud, Theft and Violence
This Executive Briefing examines a less commonly recognized factor in businesses failure, the costly challenge of managing fraud, theft and workplace violence.
Why Companies Should Be Concerned
While theft at a department store may involve merchandise of relatively modest value, other companies are vulnerable to the loss of data, files and company information that may have significant value—and in some cases may be considered priceless or irreplaceable.
Company intelligence, customer data and business files are all valuable to your company’s basic operation, and impact its profits and success. In addition to the monetary and business value of your company’s property and data, there is also the potential for great damage to your company’s name if a loss were to occur. This is especially true when it comes to protecting customers’ personal information. A breach in the security of this information can greatly damage your company’s reputation.
