  • Detecting Lies: How the Reading of Body Language and Words Help Investigators Detect Deception - Detecting deception is a learned skill. When trying to determine a person’s truthfulness and credibility, that person frequently exhibits subtle indicators. Although there is no one single indicator that will tell you a person is lying, you will learn to pick up on behavior that may cause you to doubt one’s truthfulness. Everyone lies. This session will focus on more than those everyday “little white lies”.  It is an educational and entertaining session.
  • Conducting a Physical Security Review and Assessment - This information packed program will provide you with a recipe on how to conduct your annual security review.  No longer can you just use a checklist to determine if your financial institution is safe. We will instruct you on how to think like a criminal to protect your assets, information, and people. Today, the criminal world attacks your institution via computer, customers, and social engineering ploys. Your annual review should find or correct problems with physical security, robbery procedures, and staff training.

  • Combatting ID Theft and Other Fraudulent Activity - Identity theft happens when someone steals your personal information to commit fraud. Taking steps to protect your customers’ personal information can help them recognize identity theft efforts. This fast moving, updated session follows Federal Trade Commission recommendations to identify the many types of scams and identity theft and what you can do to educate others in order to reduce their chances of becoming victims of these crimes. Stories are discussed to illustrate how easy it is to be scammed by these criminal

  • National Security Update - Security issues and priorities change on a daily basis, requiring the Security Manager to remain topically informed, assess the impact of those changes and adjust the security model for the entire institution. Crime trends and the evolution of critical legal issues should be as important as media headlines to the Board of Directors, who relies upon the Security Manager to stay topically current, in order to make informed decisions and reports to the Board of Directors. This segment contains “briefing” information about new and emerging events that will likely affect the security function.

  • Elder Fraud -  As the baby boomer generation ages, “Elder Fraud” is likely to be the biggest growing segment for crime in our country!  Criminals know who they want to target and have found ways to get close to their victims. They know exactly how to manipulate their target and don’t care what happens to them after the scam.  After gaining control of your accountholder, the weakest link at your institution becomes the target.

  • Observation vs Perception: Improving Your Ability to Pick Up on Suspicious Activity - This is an awareness session to improve your observation skills. What you see is not always what your brain tells you, you see. You will get a better understanding of ways to improve your crime prevention efforts by absorbing and interpreting what's going on around you and of why differences in opinions and descriptions can occur from several observers after all have seen the same incident.
