Two White-Collar Crime Experts Discuss Fraud and Embezzlement in the Work-from-Home Era
Working from home? Stealing from your employers at home?
In the new COVID-19 work-at-home era, ripping off employers is easier and more common than you might imagine.
The coronavirus outbreak is a potential boon to employees who are willing to steal from their companies, as fraud and embezzlement are harder to prevent and detect when a company’s workforce is able to cheat remotely.
In addition, when employees must rely on video teleconferences and personal email accounts and cell phones, it increases the vulnerability of their employers to cyber-crime and theft of sensitive intellectual property.
Doug E. Cash and Trent L. Leavitt are white-collar crime specialists with Eide Bailly, one of the country’s most respected and most trusted CPA firms.
Doug is one part crime fighter and one part prevention expert. Trent is a cyber-detective, providing computer forensics, cell phone forensics, and eDiscover.
This week, Doug and Trent join host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart to inform business owners how to prevent their companies from falling victim to coronavirus-inspired criminals, and how to detect small problems before they grow into financial nightmares.
