Information Protection for Companies. It is often the case in Russia that small and medium-sized businesses only take measures to secure their online information when it is too late and it has already been compromised. Perhaps the attitude behind this behavior is indicative of some common truth in human nature: we go to doctors only after we fall ill, we read the directions only after we’ve tried and failed to assemble something. It is the same with cyber security. We realize how essential it is only after it has been lost.read more

Hire a detective to track down a fraudster
When a business partner deceives you, it’s more than fraud; it’s betrayal. You trusted that person, and he stabbed you in the back. He didn’t even have to trick you as he already had access to your finances. The same can happen with employees, who line their pockets behind their manager’s back. And you gave these people an opportunity to earn money, accepted them in your team, and put bread on their table.
It’s always unpleasant when debts go unpaid, and, when it concerns your business, it can be crippling to the growth and production of your company. Anyone can become your debtor: a partner, a contractor, a client, a family member, anyone. It doesn’t have to involve fraudulent intent, sometimes it just happens. Instead of trying to solve the problem, the debtor often chooses to escape, trying to avoid responsibility.read more
If a business is becoming markedly less transparent, it means that the owners are possibly engaging in what is called “shadowboxing”. Loss of transparency is a symptom that usually indicates an acute, chronic pursuance of unlawful gain. Businessmen engaged in such practices use words like “cash-out”, “phoenix operation”, etc. The disease is often transmitted down to the employees, who get used to such methods of earning money. No wonder that the director or the chief accountant appropriates finances and assets, creates fraudulent schemes behind his employees’ or employer’s backs, and eventually runs away with your millions.read more
Collection of information
Those who own the information, own the world -- or at least have success in business. Perhaps that’s what Rothschild’s famous quote might say today. Now gathering a dossier on someone is a proven and reliable tool in the business world. It can be a dossier on your competitors, a collection of your employees’ personal data, or important information about public people or major business players with whom you wish to get in touch, but you can’t find the right approach.read more
All forms of partnership come with a certain set of risks. One can never be 100% confident in someone else. History is littered with faithful associates who turned into betrayers at the opportune time. What if you are entering into an agreement with strangers or people you are completely unfamiliar with? One can and must expect anything from such people.read more
Sometimes the life and activity of a legal entity is as exciting as the background of its owner. In fact, every company is a reflection of its owner, in more ways than are immediately apparent. Whether a company has a bad reputation or a firm is reliable – it depends on the businessman. Each organization is a unique mechanism, wherein every gear plays its role. Only its designer, the man who benefits the most from his creation, knows the whole truth and sees the whole picture. Other people can’t get access to the engine compartment. However, sometimes one feels the need to look under the hood. If you want to bet on this engine in a business race, or want to steer it yourself, you will probably want to take a glance at the inner machinations.read more
How to track down a company's assets in Russia
Sometimes entire companies, firms, projects and their finances vanish from the face of the earth without leaving a trace. There is a wide range of options for someone looking to hide assets and thereby release himself from the obligation of paying debts. For example: a company merger, a change of ownership or legal address, a redirection of cash flow, etc. At the same time, even successful court proceedings don’t guarantee debt repayment. Meanwhile the debtor will manage to to hide his assets more securely, so that you can never get your money back.
How to track a company's accounts in foreign banks
Transferring money overseas into foreign bank accounts, offshore companies, or foreign investments are classic schemes used to avoid debt liabilities and repercussions related to fraudulent activities. Today, when most Western countries have stopped cooperating with Russia in terms of tracking companies’ accounts in foreign banks, money is flowing abroad much heavier than ever before. Economic crimes are riding the crest of a wave, while honest business is sinking underneath. And the government offers little to no assistance in these matters, leaving claimants and victims with little realistic recourse.
