“I finished reading this over the weekend. Learning how to protect yourself against being taken advantage of is not necessarily something anyone thinks about until AFTER it happens. Identity theft, embezzlement, ransomware, etc. – it hasn’t happened to me, but it HAS happened to clients and colleagues of mine, so I’ve seen how it can impact lives.
This book opened my eyes to more of what potential problems are “out there” – and what I can do to proactively protect myself. Some of the solutions are really targeted at business owners with employees, so may not apply to everyone. But even that might be helpful, as you may better understand why things are a certain way at work, and if there are glaringly obvious shortfalls in company procedures, you might be able to bring them up and improve the situation.” – Daniel Blum (Amazon 5-Star Review)
“Opportunity + Desire = Theft. If you take the opportunity away, and employees understand the consequences associated with dishonest acts, the risk of internal theft is minimized.” – Christie Harrison, Loss Prevention Professional and Certified Forensic Interviewer (C.F.I.)
