His presentation, “Insider Theft: What Every CEO Should Know About Protecting Your Business,” will reveal the biggest myths about business security and why most “safeguards” that companies oftentimes depend upon are ineffective at stopping or exposing these crimes.

Using actual examples taken from the confidential case files of Danbee Investigations, Mr. Brandman will illustrate how companies have been victimized for six and seven figures. He will also discuss what you should never do if you suspect that fraud is taking place and The Seven Deadly Sins of Business Security.

“Over the years we have identified how tens of millions of dollars of internal theft that has significantly impacted profitability, were being quietly removed by insiders, some of who were long term and trusted employees. Many of the problems we exposed had been going on completely undetected for months and even years. After you’ve been victimized is the wrong time to find out that the controls you were relying on were superficial or antiquated.”

“Executives need to have safeguards in place that are focused on where their largest risks exist, and these tried and proven strategies are what I’ll be discussing at the conference.”
