IT Guru Turns Out to Be Security Hole 

Roger Kay reports at Forbes

Small businesses have become a choice target for hackers, but by far the most common — and devastating — attacks on small businesses are inside jobs.

This is the story of one such assault.

The target (we’ll call him Peter) trusted his IT guy (Joe, for our purposes) because Joe worked magic.  Peter didn’t understand exactly what Joe was doing, but had to trust him anyway because Peter couldn’t perform those functions himself.

Ironically, in his former life, Peter was CFO at a large oil company and once wrote a serious presentation on fraud detection and prevention.  In it, he warned his audience that “the majority of fraud offenders are trusted company employees who have enough inside knowledge to circumvent internal controls.”

The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA) supports the users of business and intangible asset valuation services and financial forensic services, including damages determinations of all kinds and fraud detection and prevention, by training and certifying financial professionals in these disciplines.
