Corporate security is often associated with uniformed security guards. But not all situations may require the visible deterrent that a security uniform provides. In some situations, a security team is one that works behind the scenes to secure property, asset(s), person(s) or an event.
When we are tasked with a corporate or executive security assignment, the initial planning steps are imperative. Expect your security team to take steps to understand every detail of the assignment from profiling the potential threat(s), reviewing the physical location and assets and conducting background checks on all relevant parties.
The most effective corporate or executive security occurs when your security team understands the potential threat(s), plans for them and engages in risk mitigation. When your corporate or executive security team operates effectively, so should your business operations.

A licensed private investigator is trained in investigative techniques and must understand the procedural steps required to be followed in order for video surveillance to be admissible.
Employers can conduct surveillance using tools such as a swipe-card system, which data can be used for time-management and disciplinary purposes, or cameras.
I have seen first-hand how fraud can be harmful to a company’s reputation and brand. Engaging in a fraud investigation is difficult and can erode the trust and morale of employees and raise questions and concerns to your outside relationships, customers, suppliers and even prospective employees. That is why before engaging in any investigation, I will ensure that I explain to the client the investigation process, the potential scope and risks, and care is taken in planning the execution and timing of any investigation.
