They provide the essential tools to take aspirational goals for fraud prevention and compliance and build them into concrete and effective programs." —From the Foreword by Bradley J. Bondi, Partner, Caldwater, Wickersham & Taft LLP "Executive Roadmap touches all the bases on corporate fraud. The authors – both experienced fraud investigators and federal law enforcement agents – lay out the history and major milestones of corporate fraud, and discuss with precision the key issues facing today’s executives and compliance leaders. The book provides a valuable overview for business leaders looking to develop and implement effective compliance programs and instill a culture of integrity in order to help their organizations defeat the challenges posed by today's sophisticated fraudsters." —Jeffrey Eglash, Senior Counsel, Litigation & Legal Policy, GE "Biegelman and Bartow provide great insight into not just how fraud occurs inside of companies, but why. Preventing fraud requires a solid understanding of both, making this book a must read for any executive who is serious about creating the compliance mechanisms and the corporate culture needed for effective fraud prevention." —Aaron G. Murphy, Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP "Business leaders would be wise to follow the recommendations in this book. Fraud prevention is more than just creating a set of policies. As the subtitle indicates, it is essential to create a culture of compliance. Empty words accomplish nothing. The authors, both experienced fraud examiners, have spent decades investigating fraud, as well as developing strategies to prevent it. This book is an essential tool in creating an anti-fraud environment in any company." —James D. Ratley, CFE, President & CEO, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners "Biegelman and Bartow's Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control is an essential guide for all who have an interest in eradicating corporate or institutional fraud. Written by experts in detecting and preventing fraud in its myriad forms, this book is a handy source for those who hope to avoid the predicaments that the authors have seen or in managing the crises that arise when the problems cannot be avoided. The new second edition is an indispensable addition to the libraries of internal compliance and legal officers, and forensic accountants." —Joel M. Cohen, Partner, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, former New York federal prosecutor and liaison to the French Ministry of Justice and OECD "Biegelman & Bartow's book offers expert guidance to anyone tasked with understanding and tackling fraud in the workplace. Their straightforward approach informs the reader and provides a roadmap and guidance for implementation of an effective fraud mechanism within any organization – small or large. I plan to provide a copy of the book to my Board of Directors and executive members of management." —Lisanne E. S. Cottington, Compliance Officer, Insight Enterprises, Inc. "This next edition is extremely timely. It covers key topics that any management member needs to know in today’s regulatory climate. These authors have used their extensive corporate and government experience to create a practical and easy to understand compliance guide. A superb resource for any executive." —Karen Popp, Partner at Sidley Austin LLP and former federal prosecutor and Associate Counsel to President Clinton "With executives increasingly on the hot seat when corporate compliance issues arise, clear guidance regarding risk areas and best practices is invaluable. Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control contains a timely combination of illustrative stories and practice tips regarding hazards in this complex area. It is a good resource for both corporate executives and the many professionals assisting corporations to prevent or detect fraud and build a culture of legal compliance." —Barb Dawson, partner with focus on internal investigations and business litigation, Snell & Wilmer LLP "Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control: Creating a Culture of Compliance is a truly phenomenal book. Martin Biegelman and Joel Bartow have accomplished an incredible achievement: they have flawlessly bridged the chasm between the theoretical/academic and practical/tangible. This is a volume that should not be on the bookshelf of every manager interested in compliance and fraud prevention (which should be every manager); it should be dog-eared and open on the desktop of every such manager! Kudos to Messrs. Biegelman and Bartow!" —William J. Kresse, M.S., J.D., CPA, CFF, CFE; Associate Professor, Graham School of Management; Director, Center for the Study of Fraud and Corruption, Saint Xavier University, Chicago "Biegelman and Bartow have again provided an invaluable resource for leaders in the corporate world who have responsibility for fraud, integrity, and compliance. They send a clear message that addressing fraud is a two part process- establishing robust controls and detection measures; and creating a culture of compliance and integrity. This work provides a detailed tour through the world of fraud controls while keeping the importance of culture at the forefront." —Ronald C. Petersen, Executive Director, Global Security, Ally Financial "From the perspective of an ethics and compliance practitioner, Martin Biegelman's and Joel Bartow's new offering is a Thanksgiving feast. Too often, companies and organizations get caught up in the moment, and don't stand back to examine the cultural, organizational and historic reasons that fraud exists. Biegelman and Bartow plow that road, and use their insights to offer invaluable tips in the design of effective anti-fraud programs." —James D. Berg, Vice President, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, Apollo Group Inc. "Biegelman and Bartow have indeed produced a functional roadmap for the executive to follow in fraud prevention and internal control. This book is a great asset for those engaged in the seemingly endless struggle to control fraud. A 'must read' for the industry." —Raymond L. Philo, MPA, Executive Director, Economic Crime Institute, Utica College "As if Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control wasn't a powerful enough tool for fraud fighters, now Biegelman and Bartow have added fresh insight and advice to the second edition. With compelling updates on costly internal and external fraud and corruption, together with easy-to-read descriptions of latest fraud-fighting technologies, this is a must-read for fraud examiners, auditors, attorneys and others—whether they've read the first edition or not." —Peter Goldmann, President, White-Collar Crime 101 LLC/FraudAware "Fraud borders on the ubiquitous in contemporary corporate culture. This book provides a rich and comprehensive guide to crafting a state of the art fraud deterrence program. While the book is sure to better equip corporate executives and directors in their fight against fraud, I intend to draw heavily upon its content in educating accounting students who represent the CEO's and CFO’s of the future." —Ingrid E. Fisher, PhD, CPA, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Accounting and Law, The University at Albany-SUNY "The book's exploration of fraud theories ranging from 'rotten apple' to the 'potato chip' (can't eat just one!), provides useful examination of the psychology of corporate fraud that explains its recurring nature and offers clues to creating a fraud resistant culture." —Zachary W. Carter, Partner and head of the Trial Group, Dorsey & Whitney LLP and former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York

It's no secret that most small retail businesses don't have the budgets to take elaborate and expensive security measures against break-ins, robberies, shoplifting, employee theft, and civil unrest. Criminals know it as well as you do—and they know how to take advantage of weaknesses you may not even notice until it's too late. But there are many inexpensive steps you can take to tighten in-store security; reduce the risk of harm to yourself, your customers, and your employees; improve your store's physical security; detect fraud and theft, and generally make it tougher for criminals to take advantage of you. In this invaluable guide, retail security expert Rudolph Kimiecik examines a broad range of external and internal security problems and prescribes affordable, sustainable solutions that will make a real difference in the safety, security, and profitability of your business. From procedures for opening and closing your store, making bank deposits, and dealing with emergencies, to selecting alarm and lock systems, key control, and deterrent lighting, Kimiecik helps you pinpoint the areas in which you are most vulnerable and shore them up with a judicious mixture of common sense, procedural control, and reasonable expenditure. Copious illustrations and figures help you familiarize yourself with security hardware, and unbiased evaluations make it easier to select the products that are right for your business. End-of-chapter checklists and sample forms enable you to organize your approach to each security issue. Kimiecik also provides helpful guidelines on how to spot, detain, interview, and arrest suspected shoplifters; evaluate checks and credit cards; identify counterfeit currency; thwart con artists; and detect fraud of every stripe. An important section on armed robbery shows you steps you can take to minimize your risk of robbery, how to behave while a robbery is in progress, and what to do once the robber has fled. A similar section covers burglaries. An entire chapter on internal loss prevention provides valuable tips on hiring trustworthy employees, preventing and detecting employee theft, and training staff members to be part of your security effort. Written in a clear, jargon-free style and organized for easy reference, Loss Prevention Guide for Retail Businesses speaks directly to you, the small business owner or manager, in language you understand. It shows you how to identify and take direct control of your store's security problems and keep your business safe, secure, and profitable. "I can't afford a corporate security staff! What can I do to protect my business?" If you've ever heard yourself saying these words . . . if you just can't afford all the full-blown protective services that alarm companies, locksmiths, and security guard agencies have to offer . . . if you're worried that shoplifters, con artists, burglars, and dishonest employees know more about in-store security than you do, you need this book. Retail security expert Rudolph C. Kimiecik gives you clear, unbiased, extremely practical advice on the entire spectrum of retail security issues: personal safety, physical security, and internal and external loss. He shows you how to identify your vulnerabilities, implement procedures to reduce risk, detect theft and fraud, and make your business a less attractive target for criminals.
