The Evolution of Loss Prevention and Security
I have been involved in the security and loss prevention arenas for longer than I can remember. Back in the day it was manual sales checks, end to end tally's and searching hundreds of documents to build a case. Then along came POS terminals, higher shortages and exception reporting. I started recruiting in 1987 and it was pretty simple if a candidate knew internal and external apprehensions and paper controls he or she would be considered a good candidate. As technology continued to evolve candidates had to be more technically proficient and influencing behavior and building relationships were the watch words of success. Omni-channel technology has now thrown security and asset protection into the IT/IS world and Loss Prevention and Asset Protection leadership are now finding that their new partners are the CIO's of their company. Yes, security has evolved and so have I as a recruiter. If you are an information security analyst or senior information analyst please fell free to reach out to discuss career opportunities.
