ATLANTA, GA. (Sept. 9, 2021) – Tom Meehan, CFI, chief strategy officer at CONTROLTEK and leading expert in cybersecurity and organized retail crime, will join Noel Thomas, chief executive officer of Zero Trafficking, to deliver the keynote on the link between organized retail crime (ORC) and human trafficking, at the Georgia Retailers Organized Crime Alliance (GROC) Virtual Summit, on September 16, 2021.
“Human trafficking has become a major concern to retailers as organized retail crime has been shown to increase larger, more violent crimes,” said Meehan. “With Noel’s expertise in the fight against human trafficking, we’ll inform retailers about how to spot potential indicators of both ORC and human trafficking in their own operations.”
In this session, retailers can expect to gain a better understanding of how human trafficking and ORC are connected, how to spot potential indicators, and what to do when faced with this activity to help in the fight against ORC and human trafficking. “I’m pleased to support Tom’s involvement with Zero Trafficking and commend them for the critical work they are doing to equip the retail industry with resources and solutions to help combat the evolving challenges they are faced with in regards to ORC,” said Rod Diplock, CEO of CONTROLTEK.
