Topic Background:

Fraud and other forms of employee misconduct can strike any business or organization, anywhere. In fact, the largest percentage of fraud victims are private businesses, and those businesses are almost always victimized by long-term, trusted employees. Religious and non-profit organizations are just as vulnerable as businesses, and in some cases more so, due to the often charitable nature of the organizations themselves.

Given the extensive damage that internal threats such as fraud or other forms of employee criminality can cause to an organization, not only in financial terms, but also to the victimized entities’ reputation, internal operations, morale, and, in some cases, even their continued existence, it is imperative that those responsible for protecting their organizations understand the most common forms those threats can take. A solid conceptual foundation in the mechanisms of fraud, embezzlement and misappropriation, corruption, harassment and stalking, and other threats, will enable an organization’s leaders to understand how these threats arise, how to identify structural weaknesses that can be exploited, and red flags that some form of misconduct is afoot.

Of equal importance to understanding the forms that these threats can take is the ability to design procedures and make use of tools to deter potential threats, mitigate the potential risks, and reduce the possible exposure that can be caused by the realization of one or more of these threats. Finally, even the most robust deterrence protocol is not foolproof. In the event that an organization, or one of its employees, becomes victimized by a malfeasor, the organization’s leaders must understand the best practices to follow to halt the damaging conduct, investigate the situation fully, and resolve the situation in order to minimize its own exposure to liability or other harm.
