Threats to people
From acts of terrorism to armed robbery, harassment of staff or hostage taking, the threat to people must be taken most seriously of all.
Threats to property
Both theft and physical damage to property, ranging from arson attacks and acts of terrorism to simple vandalism, can have a devastating financial effect.
Threats to information
If confidential data is stolen or compromised or vital records are destroyed, the future viability of a business can be jeopardised.
Threats to cash
Special precautions must be taken to protect stocks of cash and other portable and easily traded assets that are highly vulnerable to theft.
Threats of the future
Organisations develop over time, growing (or contracting) and meeting new circumstances and challenges. A security strategy must adapt and cope.
