Barry Brandman, President of Danbee Investigations, will be a featured speaker at the AWMA Conference on March 6, 2013. His presentation is entitled “Protecting Your Assets: Security Best Practices in a High Theft Industry.”

Considered one of the country’s top experts on business security, Mr. Brandman’s seminar will focus on employee dishonesty, which costs American companies more than $20 billion annually and is responsible for approximately one third of all business failures. Because employee theft always escalates in difficult economic times, this topic is especially timely for executives concerned about protecting their profit margins.

Mr. Brandman’s company has investigated over $70 million of theft for tobacco, candy, food, beverage and convenience store distributors.

“When you warehouse and transport highly desirable product like tobacco, candy and grocery, it’s imperative that you utilize the very best practices to protect your inventory. Executives essentially have two choices when it comes to security. They can rely on superficial controls to protect their assets, which almost always proves to be a costly strategy, or implement tried and proven, proactive safeguards,” explains Barry Brandman.

Mr. Brandman will discuss the difference between meaningful and cosmetic security, the “red flags” of collusion and fraud, why the internet has become the ultimate flea market for dishonest workers and professional thieves, and the 7 Deadly Sins of Security. Additionally, he will reveal the devious methods used by professional theft rings to circumvent even the most high tech security systems and steal millions of dollars of inventory.
