mistakes and criminal activities such as fraud... according to recent
research and survey, the majority of companies lose up to 5% of their
turnover as a result of major internal malpractice, crime, and negligence.
Only about 50% of all companies have prevention and detection systems in
place to detect such malpractice and crime, including a whistle blowing
widely known that an external system for whistle blowing is much more
effective than any attempt of using internal contacts within a company for
employees to report to. Brillstein Security offers the client a full
system of handling whistle blowing reports. Employees should have an
anonymous way available to report their concerns and observations as
regards malpractice of co-workers, mistakes, security issues, and possible
criminal activities. Employees should feel free to report events such as
of resources or money
infringements of regulatory obligations
of unauthorized disclose of information
threats to safety, security and health

Finally, malpractice and crime causes substantial losses to every company.
These losses are not inevitable. Creating a functioning whistle-blowing
system will help you avoid losses, create a better environment for
employees to work in and give your company an edge over company ignoring
the options of whistle blowing.
