The anti-betrayal slip: great invention or unreliable tool?

slipAn underwear company in Japan has created “anti-betrayal” slip that hide inside a “control” sensor. The product is designed for very caring husbands or hyper-paranoid girlfriends. The particularity of the pant, on sale at $99, is that it has a chip connected directly to a computer that allows you to check the heart rate and body temperature of the person wearing it, allowing you to watch at any moment his movements.

If it were so simple with a probe and a processor, all adultery may be avoided or discovered. In fact, when the slip is worn, the probe detects a different temperature respect of the environment and forwards the impulse to the processor that indicates the precise time. Subsequently, the operating system is in stand-by and is reactivated only after another change of heat. The supplied probe is also able to record the pH of the skin, thus giving evidence that who wore that pants was the partner. The processor is also connected by wires which have the shape of the slip in order to detect changes in position. Then it’s enought connect the slip with the processor to a computer, which will reveal if the garment has been removed and precisely how long. The garment is also ergonomic and you can wash it just like any other underwear.

According to a survey conducted by ACFE – Association of Certified Fraud Examiners – every year companies lose over 5% of their profits due to theft and other crimes realized by employees. The potential damage was estimated at global level, in three billion dollars. Frauds by employees affect all companies, small, medium and large.

They have causes, methods and impact very different, but have a common denominator: on the one hand, the lack of knowledge of the risks and internal vulnerabilities and, at the other hand, the inability to prevent and manage employees infidelity. It’s a complex problem and an ever-changing phenomenon. The studies, carried out are still limited, but the scenario that they show is quite clear: companies bear the economic risks, direct or indirect, caused by their employees, at all levels of the hierarchy. But, are often the same companies to provide opportunities for the realization of abuses and violations.

On average, companies employ about 18 months to intercept fraud and more long is  the time of detection, greater is the damage and the impact on the business environment. Currently, the most popular way to become aware of the existence of domestic abuse is the “whisper”. Another employee acts as a “spy” about an unlawful. In 30% of cases, the managers can be peaceful carrying out constant monitoring activities through appropriate tools. In fact, almost always, the cause of these events is to be found in the total absence of anti-fraud policies and, when these are present, they’re inadequate. Only those who rely on professional in security and surveillance field are able to actually prevent fraud of any kind.

Regardless of the numbers, what it’s important emphasized is the resignation that companies seem to have against the risk of fraud; in other words, companies try to hide their inability to limit employee dishonesty behind a kind of tacit tolerance. This threshold moves ever forward, year after year, and beyond this threshold there isn’t almost never an efficiently and effectively plan against fraud. Building and, above all, implement an anti fraud strategy within the company, isn’t difficult and, however, one cannot do without.
