A business that does not recognize the vulnerability of its systems, data, customers, operations, and reputation to fraudsters committing identity theft has left the door wide open for them. These thieves use many methods to infiltrate a business and steal information (both electronic and printed) for nefarious uses. They count on management not creating a security policy, training employees on fraud warning signs, or instituting procedures that forbid dangerous practices. They revel in the small business trust factor that shuns internal controls or believes that the company is just too small to ever be a victim.
