Midland Park, NJ (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
The CSCMP Symposium will be held at the Syracuse University Lubin House in Manhattan and will be attended by logistics executives from an array of industries.
Three of the most serious security threats facing logistics executives today are internal theft, organized crime and terrorism.
Since 2004, there have been over 600 reported attacks on the global supply chain. In light of recent events, many experts expect this risk to increase in the immediate future. One study analyzed the consequences of a simulated act of terrorism taking place at an American port. It estimated that in addition to loss of life the economic impact could be in the billions.
Organized crime rings targeting American companies are responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars of loss each year. One pharmaceutical facility lost $75 million of inventory when criminals were able to circumvent their elaborate electronic security systems. “These professional crime organizations know more about alarm and video technology than most of the companies that install them”, said Danbee President, Barry Brandman, “Between employee theft and organized crime groups, manufacturers, distributors and carriers need to know how to protect their companies from internal as well as external security threats today.”
Barry Brandman is President of Danbee Investigations, an organization that works with leading companies on security concerns such as inventory loss, fraud, product tampering and diversion, as well as helping firms obtain government security certifications such as C-TPAT. He is the author of two security manuals (http://www.danbeeinvestigations.com/security-consultants-corporate-investigations).
Considered one of the country’s top security experts, Brandman will illustrate actual case histories of companies that have been victimized, explain how to get maximum results from an undercover investigation, and reveal which security strategies have proven to be most effective.
