It is important that enterprises have some formal mechanism for managing security risks. This may include creating a programme to deliver awareness, prevention, preparedness, and response to changes in enterprise risk conditions. At its most basic, a security structure may be a single security focal point (FP) that can be developed and then supported by Allmode through guidance and assurance, this FP is perhaps responsible for security alongside other tasks or functions.
They may have a fully-staffed security structure, with a corporate security director, regional security advisors, and country and site heads of security, if this is the case Allmode could offer a third party assurance here, more of a “fresh eyes” approach in support of the corporate governance and security strategy.
Some things that can be easily adapted and cost effective through our vulnerability assessments/risk analysis/ survey or audits, are outlined below:
- Environmental Design – Looking at the your current infrastructure and advise on any gaps in the design that could easily be vulnerable to malevolent attack.
- Mechanical Measures – The design and evaluation of your physical protection systems in place and the procurement of new measures that could be commensurate to the threat.
- People – Employees of your enterprise must be socialised to feel committed to any security programme in place. Strong leadership and the use of the FP would be developed and then supported.
- Procedural Security – Some enterprises play lip service to this, believing that any adaption to procedures could have an effect on the overall business strategy. Procedural governance for corporate security could be carried out by Allmode, ranging from basic assignment instructions and SOP’s for their in house security team to executive journey management and micro political risk analysis for any location that they wish to travel to.
