There is a hidden cost to downsizing that companies are starting to come to grips with. According to a recent story in CSO Magazine, an auditor formerly employed at a major water distribution company used his electronic key card which was still active following his separation from the company, to get into secured facilities and wire himself $9 Million dollars before being discovered.
