Insider theft by security guards

Two security guards in the UK steal £7 million pounds that they were transporting to the Bank of Ireland. One employee claims he acted under duress after his family was threatened. 

The following security measures would assist businesses, to reduce the risk of a similar incident occurring in their business:

  • A clear company Code of Conduct Policy
  • Security training and awareness in the workplace
  • Having a whistleblower hotline or confidential reporting pathways in place
  • Fostering a strong security culture and supporting employees with security concerns
