About our VOSB Designation

vosb_large

Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) is a company diversity registration designated under the Veteran Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-461). Registration ensures that companies qualify for preferential procurement for federal contracts if they are owned and controlled by Veterans.

This certification is non-industry specific and requires that the firm meets the small business requirements established by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Additionally, it requires that the company is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a veteran.

Internal Threat Mitigation: A Touchy Subject

Mitigating internal threats can be a touchy subject. While cameras and access control points are placed strategically during construction, acting upon the evidence they collect is a team effort. In this video excerpt from his on-demand webinar, Eric touches on this sensitive topic faced all too often by security operations teams.

 

 

5 top behaviors to look for...

  1. Unusual Working Hours: Employees who frequently stay late or arrive unusually early without a clear reason might be seeking opportunities to commit theft without witnesses. While dedication is admirable, these odd hours can also provide ample time to steal with less risk of being caught.

  2. Reluctance to Take Vacations: Employees who are hesitant to take time off might fear their theft will be discovered in their absence. In many cases, discrepancies become evident only when the regular employee is not there to cover them up.

  3. Control Issues: An employee who is overly protective or secretive about their work, refusing to share tasks or information, might be concealing unethical activities. This behavior often stems from the fear that someone else might uncover their malpractices.

  4. Sudden Change in Behavior: A noticeable change in an employee's behavior, such as becoming withdrawn, anxious, or aggressive, can be a sign of guilt or fear of being caught. It's important to note these changes, especially if they are abrupt and unexplained.

  5. Resistance to Audits or Checks: An employee who becomes defensive or obstructive when audits are mentioned or conducted might have something to hide. Transparency should be a core value embraced by all staff members.
