Two professors in Criminal Justice have conducted extensive research into white-collar crime research (pressures, motivations and opportunities).  While many companies protect themselves from criminal elements outside of the company, many risks come from the company's own employees.  This discussion presents the risks, opportunities and frames the types of crimes that companies face from internal sources.
