We are all faced with internal and external factors that contribute to risks in different ways. Understanding and managing these risks is the foundation of good security work.
Security Risk Management is about proactive security. It aims to develop, document and implement controls and routines for protecting organisation assets, including information. It is about protecting future interests strongly linked to company critical assets, including information, staff, property and facilities.
Operative security risks are part of company total risk management. Consequently, it is of key importance to understand which company assets and core values need protecting, what threatens them and what can be done to protect them.
Risk management works by identifying, analyzing and remedying risks. Followed up by making sure security procedures are strictly observed.
If risk management is to work effectively, it must be integrated into company strategy, leadership, management, planning and reporting.
