Miss Florida Stripped

While in Florida at the ASIS annual conference on behalf of AFIMAC and FocusPoint, I caught a story on TV about a recent Miss Florida contest.

After Genesis Davila had won the crown, it was alleged that she had used professional hair and makeup services in her room, which is against pageant rules. Ms. Davila was stripped of her title and crown in the days following. Although there were alleged complaints from eyewitnesses, the damning evidence against Ms. Davila came from her Instagram account, showing her having her makeup done by a 3rd party.

Currently, Ms. Davila is suing for damages in excess of $15 million, sighting amongst other things, that the photo she posted of having her makeup done was taken the week before, not on the pageant day. If what Ms. Davila claims about the photo is true, it is possible pageant organizers jumped the gun without a thorough investigation.

In the corporate world, dealing with rule breakers, theft, WPV, harassment, and employees using drugs is something you would like to deal with quickly. Also, although a social media investigation is a good first step, following up with an employee interview and physical investigation is beneficial to support a termination and court proceedings if required.

Well, if anyone casually asks me at ASIS 2012 if anything is new since last year I hope they have an hour or so because I’ll have a lot to tell them!  AFI and IMAC merged and are now AFIMAC, AFIMAC acquired Brazil based MENA International, we have a new video Q & A system called Insights Under Two,  our expert team has been blogging, we made major enhancements to our incident tracking software called VERITAS, our on-line training courses have increased to include several excellent topics, and the company has grown tremendously over the last year and refocused its core service offerings.

It’s going to be a great show and year to follow!
