Does Your Business Need Ongoing Monitoring?
When considering whether or not your business needs ongoing monitoring, think about how much risk you’re willing to accept. If you don’t want to put your business, reputation, and livelihood at risk, then you need ongoing monitoring. While there’s no way to eliminate all risks, regular monitoring can mitigate as much of it as possible.
Reasons to Consider Ongoing Monitoring
Your organization will always face internal and external threats. Some are more serious than others. From malware and phishing to disgruntled employees and nefarious reviews, you have to anticipate and be prepared for the next problem. However, the most serious risks come from within your organization, and that’s where we can help.
Types of Internal Risks
Perhaps you already conduct an initial background check in order to ensure that everyone from the janitor to the executive has a clean background when they’re hired. If you’re not continuing to monitor the backgrounds of your full-time, part-time and temporary workers, you’re increasing your risk. Unmonitored employees may steal property, sell or walk away with proprietary data. They could spread rumors or spill secrets to other employers that are your competitors. Of course, most employees won’t intentionally hurt your business but it only takes a few to have a significantly negative impact.
You’re not the same person you were a decade ago. Your employees change over time, too. A person who passed their background check with flying colors a few years ago may now have a domestic violence, DUI, or assault charge on their record. A personal bankruptcy could cause an employee not to make the best decisions in the short term. Ongoing monitoring is a best practice for keeping up with the backgrounds of those whom you employ.
