Internal investigations are a vital part of Control and Security Program. It's a serious matter when an employee is alleged to be violating company rules. So-called 'insider threats' can cause as much damage as thieves outside. These threats come in many different forms which include:
Outright theft of physical assets
Unauthorized access, to manipulate data or to sell it
Threats, sexual harassment or other inappropriate forms of behavior or communication.
Internal investigations aim to uncover the truth about alleged misconduct within the organization. But a good internal investigation must do so without compromising the relationship with innocent employees or unnecessarily damaging anyone's reputation. The course is therefore intended to impart good planning, consistent execution, analytical skill, sensitivity, and a solid grasp of the legalities involved in Internal Investigations.
