All across America and all over the world the tide of institutional and workplace violence is inexorably rising. It seems that hardly a day goes by when auditors and their organizations are not confronted with headlines announcing yet another Virginia Tech or Columbine tragedy with all the accompanying human and economic suffering such seemingly senseless events entail.

As key members of the management team, auditors and other security professionals are uniquely charged with responsibility for helping to keep our organizations, fellow employees and clients secure. Every student, employee and client entering our respective corporate, educational and governmental communities has a right to feel safe and secure while doing so.

This lecture is an attempt to present a hands on approach to the issue of dealing with the multi-faceted issue institutional violence, focusing on the identification of potential perpetrators and the structuring of appropriate organizational and individual response.
