Findings Point To Brain Differences
Psychopaths are characterized by shallow emotions, impulsiveness,
irresponsibility, egocentricity, and a lack of empathy or guilt.
Robert Hare, who specializes in the study of psychopaths—who
make up as much as a quarter of the prison population—characterizes
them as "intraspecies predators who use charm, manipulation,
intimidation, and violence to control others and to satisfy their
own selfish needs." Their egocentricity, Hare says, makes psychopaths
particularly dangerous; a recent FBI study, for instance, found
that almost half of law enforcement officers who died in the line
of duty were killed by psychopathic individuals. A Crime Time Article
On Asset Protection-Worldwide Product Protection
While most corporate security directors can effectively secure product
at their own manufacturing facility or warehouse, they exercise
far less control at overseas or contract sites and as product travels
from the plant to stores. To develop an effective security program
for product both in production and in transit, the security professional
must understand the threat, the fundamental techniques used by thieves,
the inherent weaknesses of certain manufacturing or shipping strategies,
and the tools and solutions that can mitigate the risk. By Jeffrey
A. Williams, CPP
You Should Know About Conflict of Interest
Employees, in performing official duties, are expected to act on
behalf of and in the best interests of the organization that employs
them. A conflict of interest arises for an employee, officer or
director of an organization when that person acts, or appears to
act, on behalf of someone other than the organization; and has,
or appears to have, a self interest of which the organization is
unaware and that is actually or potentially adverse to its best
interests. If a conflict of interest results in economic or financial
loss to the organization through fraud, waste or abuse, then administrative,
civil or criminal remedies may be pursued, as circumstances or policy
dictate. By Mark R. Simmons, CIA CFE

Security Numbering Scheme Explained
In the United States a Social Security Number (SSN) is considered
the standard identifier and is used by many government and private
institutions. Each SSN is a unique identifier assigned to only one
individual. When that individual dies their SSN is not reassigned,
but rather, is used to administer benefits to their dependents and
survivors, and becomes part of the Social Security Death Index.
