Deep within our software, hidden behind thick walls we have evidence which becomes essential in tracking employee fraud. We call it the audit log. One smart employee in a business using our software found out about this and tried tampering with it, to conceal his fraud against the business. He didn’t know we keep a mirror image of the log stored elsewhere and that we track tampering of the audit log. This provided the evidence necessary to make him accountable for his crime.
While we wish we did not have to do such things, these are important tools in retail – to protect co-workers and provide the business owner the mechanism necessary to protect their business.
