The article focuses on the Protecting Employers From Insider Threats forum (Prefit) formed in Great Britain to deal with employee fraud. Prefit said that vetting and screening strategies are needed to fight this type of crime which, according to the Association of Chief Police Officers, is costing Britain 20 billion British pounds annually. Prefit was reportedly set up to bring human resources (HR) and security professionals together, and chairman David Chernick urges HR practitioners to take advantage of its networking opportunities.
