truth intelligence training and consulting?
If you’re in high-stakes or international business dealings, high-profile litigation or high-value data protection, we should talk.
Do you really know your business partner?
You’re doing an international business deal with someone you met recently. They seem sharp, connected and professional. But do you really know them well enough to risk losing your money, your livelihood or worse?
Who are you hiring?
Resumes are nice, but—like humans in interviews—they can lie. When you’re hiring executive-level talent, wouldn’t you like to know if there’s anything unforeseen lurking between the glowing lines of the resume? Isn’t your, and your company’s reputation worth the extra due diligence?
Are you sure that “can’t-miss” investment opportunity really is?
Somebody has a once-in-lifetime deal for you. It’s a lucrative blockbuster, but you have to act fast. Your source is trusted, and it all looks good on paper. But what’s lurking in the fine print, back rooms or physical assets could sink your ship long before it comes in. Do you know how to find the real truth, before it’s too late?
Are your litigators world-class questioning strategists?
It’s simple. Bringing out the truth is the difference between winning and losing. But when it comes to interviews, depositions and cross-examination, is your team actually trained in the scientific strategies of uncovering the nuances of truth from challenging witnesses or defendants?
A would-be whistleblower says they have powerful information. But are they credible?
You’ve spent months representing a key witness or relator in a whistleblower or qui tam relator case. Only to get to trial and discover undisclosed issues with your client that challenge the veracity of your case. Wouldn’t it be better to know that before your client’s credibility—and yours—is impeached?
Sure, the balance sheets look great. But where are the skeletons hiding?
Your bean-counters love the numbers, telling you how terrific the deal is. Unfortunately, that’s often enough for many dealmakers, who get blindsided shortly after the ink dries. A forensic audit can uncover criminal behavior—such as fraud or embezzlement—before the deal is done. Maybe not such a good deal after all, is it?
Your soon-to-be acquisition is a perfect match. Or is it?
Shiny, new assets you don’t have now. More market share. Category prestige. You’re about to be the big dog. However, if you don’t understand the culture of the team you’re acquiring, you could quickly face undisclosed human-resource issues, personality conflicts, or worse, a mass exodus. So, have you done the same due diligence vetting the human capital you’re acquiring as you have the physical assets?
Think you’re immune to insider threats?
You’re probably not. Whether it’s proprietary formulas, sensitive patient information or customers’ personal financial accounts, data is everywhere. And everything to your business. You can protect data from external intruders, but sometimes the biggest threat is lurking in-house. Are you, and your employees, properly trained on how to avoid vital data or intellectual property being stolen, or compromised, by corporate embezzlers?
Who’s gathering competitive business intelligence on whom?
You’ve got new drugs or new tech in the pipeline. Your business intelligence division is chatting-up competitors at conferences and trade shows to understand the marketplace. The question is: are they formally “trained” to gather data effectively and ethically? But the usually forgotten question is: are your own scientists and developers trained to not spill corporate info when competitors’ counter-intelligence people bump up against them?
