The access to information was never better than these times.

The challenge is to focus on what is relevant.

We love to share what we know, experienced and learned over the last three decades.

Either by directly talking to you – which is what we most prefer – or speaking about it for a large audience, writing fact sheets, articles and books about the broad topics of non-compliance, white-collar and cyber crime as well as the human behaviour and leadership.

Anything missing? Let’s talk about it



Let’s talk about the human factor.
Social Engineering is not new nor is only conducted in business. Would you like to learn how to deal with social engineers? Being able to recognize the red flags and becoming a leader for the future?

Ability to act in case of cybercrime emergency (ExpertSuisse / 2017)
Data loss and cyber attacks are business-critical operational risks in the digital world.

Responsibility and procedure in case of emergency (Sicherheit und Recht / 2017)
In today’s digital and mobile world, data loss and cyber attacks are operational business-critical risks, which every company has to keep an eye on. Cyber criminals seek the weakest point in a system, which is often affected by the human factor. Such attacks take place against banks as well as against service or manufacturing enterprises. Especially for medium-sized companies a cyber attack can quickly be existence-threatening. In case of suspected non-compliance and white-collar crime, acting correctly is therefore indispensable. This article shows preventive options for action and the right approach in each individual case. A preparation for such cases is presented in the FraudAidKitTM method, which in the form of an “emergency kit” provides an adequate and practical instrument for dealing with emergencies.
