Implementing a Risk Assessment Program to Safeguard Your Employees, Customers and Assets


Organizations, facilities, customers, and employees are confronted with a certain level of risk concomitant with various threats. The threats may be the result of natural events, accidents, or intentional acts to cause harm and create havoc. Threat, vulnerability, and risk are terms that are inherent to security programs. But frequently, organizations get their meanings confused. Following this session, security professionals will understand the relationships between threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences so they can effectively manage the impact of an event — and manage the risk. Attendees will learn about physical security and crime risk assessments, why a Risk Assessment Program is an integral component of the Security Program, various approaches to the risk assessment process and the key elements to assess and mitigate physical security and crime risk.
