CORPORATE AND COMPANY SECURITY
Corporate/company security extends far beyond protecting physical assets, information, and high level executives. Security for the individual employee, both at work and at home is a growing concern for company leaders; especially for companies that operate in high risk areas. The challenge of work force security encompasses almost every aspect of people’s professional and private lives whether you are developing an employee travel policy, incorporating cyber security measures, or ensuring your children get to school safely. The degree and level of these security challenges are influenced by a myriad of factors that engage you in security planning and risk mitigation.
SECURITY PLANNING AND RISK MITIGATION
Security planning and risk mitigation are key elements in the loss prevention of valuable assets to include your employees. Employee security challenges often have both simple and complex solutions; therefore, employee security is never a “one size fits all” solution. Companies and employees are subject to different types of threats based on industry and location, thus creating varied perspectives on perceived threats and acceptable levels of response.
CORPORATE AND EMPLOYEE TRAINING
Corporate training is an extremely effective tool for risk/liability mitigation and an integral part of security planning. The starting point is determining and prioritizing the training requirements. Since each company is different, training needs to be customized to ensure the desired end state is achieved. Security training allows each employee to be invested in the company’s security utilizing the learned skills both at work and at home.
Companies and corporations need to review and assess their security plans and activities routinely. Almost every security threat changes over time, and in some cases, almost instantly and continuously. The real challenge is being able to anticipate the threat and take the appropriate steps to avoid an incident. Changing security measures and/or routines can cause criminal elements to change their plans or abandon their efforts as result of their apprehension.
EMPLOYEE SECURITY TRAINING ENABLES YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH THE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE TO MITIGATE THREATS, MAKING THEM A HARDER TARGET.
