Our nation lost more than 3,000 financial institutions from 1986-1992 because of fraud, mismanagement and waste -- and the cycle has begun again. The case histories of those failed institutions reveal that most of them shared many well-documented, common denominators that examiners now use as failure "predictors", or "profiles". Examiners from all of the nation's regulatory agencies, insurance company risk management specialists -- and security, audit, operations, human resources and compliance personnel from thousands of financial institutions -- continue to contribute to the development of these profiles.

This segment addresses the methods used by both internal and external offenders to determine if an institution is vulnerable to policy violations and criminal activities.

Using the Security Officer to promote these strategic and tactical suggestions -- and the accompanying prevention methods -- will reduce an institution's losses significantly. Among the topics to be presented that often contribute to an offender's "window of opportunity" are:
  • Why an organization's culture is the most important deterrent to loss -- and what aspects of that culture leave the institution vulnerable to crime
  • How an organization's policies and procedures not only can prevent losses -- but what practices are the most effective in supplying evidence if a loss occurs
  • Why certain crimes target specific personnel -- and how you can establish and maintain a loss prevention "commitment" with all of your employees
  • What documents are most often forged, altered and counterfeited -- and how computers and records are used to facilitate crimes and conceal/reveal evidence
  • Who uses facility opening and closing procedures to their own advantage -- and why these industry-standard procedures may not be enough to deter policy and criminal violations
