Investigations

Despite your best efforts to protect your assets and ensure the loyalty of everyone in the organization, you have reason to suspect wrongdoing. It may be a data breach from the inside, a theft or evidence that confidential information has somehow fallen into the wrong hands.

Perhaps there is no suspicion of criminal wrongdoing and your investigative needs are simply administrative, to probe, for example, the circumstances around a workplace incident, issue or complaint.  You may require a due diligence investigation, to check the background of a potential new employee, or to ensure that your organization doesn’t face undue risk from doing business with another entity.

Are you prepared?

Regardless of the scenario, your organization may lack the resources, qualifications, oversight and guidelines to ensure any investigation is sufficiently thorough, objective, timely and fair.

Investigations of any kind can have a negative impact on the reputation and livelihood of the individual being investigated if not done properly and without bias. They may also create liability for your organization.

This is why you should call Presidia.
