Breach of Confidentiality Investigations

Asset Recovery InvestigationsIn the world of business, trust is paramount. However, the unfortunate reality is that dishonest individuals or employees can potentially cost you or your company a significant amount of money and reputation. While preventative measures can help reduce losses and minimize the opportunities for theft, there’s always a chance that someone might slip through the cracks. Even if you’ve taken the precaution of having individuals sign confidentiality agreements, there’s still the risk of those agreements being violated, putting you in a precarious position that may necessitate a breach of confidentiality investigation.

Confidentiality is a cornerstone of many industries and an integral part of how business is conducted. When this trust is violated, it can manifest in various ways, from abusing confidence to using improper means to gain access to trade secrets or breaching contractual agreements. Those involved in such breaches may be held liable for trade secret theft. Consequently, many individuals and businesses need a comprehensive confidentiality check to assess whether the person they are dealing with has a history of violating agreements.

Types of Confidentiality Checks

Confidentiality checks encompass a range of investigative services, including:

  • Employee Theft Investigations: Identifying and addressing internal theft and misconduct.
  • Shopper Services and Spot Checks: Assessing the integrity of retail operations and customer service.
  • Undercover Operations: Infiltrating suspicious or potentially unethical activities covertly.
  • Criminal and Drug Operations: Investigating criminal activities and drug-related issues.
  • Shortage Interviews: Examining inventory discrepancies and shortages.
  • Liaison with Law Enforcement Agencies: Collaborating with law enforcement to address criminal matters.
  • Policy Compliance Audits: Ensuring adherence to company policies and procedures.
  • Marketing and Sales Audits: Evaluating the integrity of marketing and sales practices.
  • Safety and Security Audits: Assessing safety and security protocols within an organization.
  • Covert Body Cameras: Utilizing discreet surveillance technology to gather evidence.
  • Terminations of Hostile Employees: Safely managing the termination process for problematic employees.
Classification of Confidentiality Checks

Confidentiality checks typically fall into two main categories:

  • Competitive-Advantage or Trade-Secrets: Assessing whether individuals have used improper means to gain a competitive edge, either directly or indirectly.
  • Personal Information: Investigating potential breaches involving personal information.
