The Top 25 Investigative Mistakes
There are hundreds of ways to make critical security and investigative mistakes, and so little time to deal with the aftermath.

If you are your institution’s security officer, one of your primary duties is to reduce or eliminate the opportunities for losses from internal and external sources — and crime isn’t the only issue. This series identifies the most common (and costly) mistakes with proven methods for either preventing those mistakes or minimizing their potential impact. Program content isn’t based on theory.

It’s a “real-life” program targeting issues that may contribute to more than 75 percent of an institution’s losses.


  • Learn the mistakes a good investigator never makes
  • Know how to correct the mistakes another investigator may have made
  • Discover who should investigate internal fraud
  • Understand the importance of documentation and evidence collection
  • Learn how to handle the pressure of the investigation and management reaction
