Threat Assessments Allow You to Plan, Prepare, and Prevent
People often attribute threat assessments with workplace violence mitigation or mass casualty incident prevention. It’s true these security issues are commonly addressed in any physical threat assessment. However, businesses and facilities are far more likely to see other types of lower-level security threats on a daily basis.
These everyday, lower-level threats need to be planned for ahead of time, addressed swiftly when they occur, and thoroughly reviewed after the incident. This is how you keep small threats from becoming larger risks to your organization and staff.
Daily Threats to a Business or Facility’s Security
We all know that most companies today are deeply concerned with cyber threats, but physical threats can also devastate a business.
Theft, vandalism, a non-compliant customer/visitor/employee, loiterers, an on-site security breach, protestors, or rioters are more common security threats to business operations. Regardless of the type of business you own or manage, properly securing your building is the first step in protecting your people and property.
