Security is important

nineelevenThe value of sound physical security should never be underestimated.

Auditing security is not just the responsiblity of security personnel.

Risk and vulnerability assessments take a team effort.

 

It is post-911, but we must never forget that the events of 9/11 could happen again.

Since 9/11, tens of thousands of managers have been made responsible for physical security – some know what is expected of them and others do not.

Political and economic instability, disgruntled workers, organized crime, terrorism or unpredicted disasters and emergencies require organizations to test exisiting physical protection systems at least annually to ensure that high consequence loss assets are protected and limited physical security budgets are properly allocated.

Learn how to audit your physical security sytem. If you are a financial auditor or are involved in the planning and approving of security budgets or if you are a member of a business continuity and disaster recovery committee, we encourage you to attend our seminars and learn how to speak "Security".

It is recommended that organizations...

  • Assemble a risk assessment team made up of trusted individuals knowledgeable about the facilities physical operations.
  • Conduct regular vulnerability assessments to identify weakness before introducing countermeasures.
  • Identify the legal systems and laws that might come into play before implementing countermeasures.

    ...because security is about risk management, and risk management is about understanding and managing risks, not about making a bunch of changes in the name of making changes.

    The best line of defense begins with training your key personnel.  Not by purchasing more technology.
