We could have changed history!

In the famous fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood approaches “Grandma” who is actually the Big Bad Wolf in disguise.

“How Many Times?”

We, and our partners, often ask ourselves that very question after hearing case after case of employee fraud being committed at an enterprise.
