Australia’s First Corporate Spy School Breaks Cover At Security 2012 Exhibition
With rapid advancements in technology, security is becoming a major concern for businesses who play a cat and mouse game with tech-savvy fraudsters. According to PWC’s sixth Global Economic Crime Survey, cybercrime now ranks as one of the top four economic crimes, and 56 per cent of respondents said the most serious fraud was an ‘inside job’. Reputation damage, loss of intellectual property and bankruptcy can be some of the serious consequences of cyber crime in the corporate sector.
For the Corporate Spy School training courses, SCIA will draw on its extensive experience in delivering the most advanced safety and security innovations to Australia’s leading corporations, through state-of-the-art surveillance equipment and the latest research methods and strategies. Using state of the art technology that only a handful of companies are licenced to operate in Australia, SCIA provides specialised services that protect company secrets and sensitive business information.
“While corporate espionage including Intellectual Property theft is on the rise in Australia, many business leaders fail to recognise the early warning signs in their organisation,” Navid Sobbi, CEO at Specialist Corporate Intelligence Agency, said. “That’s why we’re proud to take the wraps off our Corporate Spy School at Security 2012 Exhibition where we’re aiming to raise awareness for the issue and provide very practical tips that can help prevent fraud even before it happens.”
Channel partners sought for new program
SCIA is also calling on private security firms and sole traders in the security industry to join its new partner program. Resellers gain access to SCIA’s exclusive program, branded promotion and marketing collateral, and SCIA’s high-end corporate and government clients.
“At SCIA we provide a one-stop destination for organisations who seek a partner to discuss their intellectual property risk concerns,” Sobbi said. “With the SCIA accreditation, businesses have the peace of mind that they receive the highest standard of quality and services available today; and security providers can capitalise on our educational materials and corporate and government network of contacts.”
