THE MANY FACETS OF RISK MANAGEMENT
Corporate security risk management involves identifying, assessing, monitoring and controlling physical and information security risks, threats, and vulnerabilities to organizations. It requires strategic intelligence analysis and an understanding of all internal and external factors that could pose security risks to a company, its employees, guests, and assets.
PERSONAL PHYSICAL SECURITY
When protecting high-risk and high profile individuals, corporate security teams need contextual intelligence from as many angles as possible. Whether it’s assessing travel risk for an executive abroad, or providing protection at high profile events, getting alerts from social media content being produced from the area provides a layer of intelligence that cannot be overlooked.
Discovering information breaches before they become a larger problem is of huge importance when protecting an organization. Dark web discovery and social media threat intelligence tools are essential for identifying and analyzing internal security incidents, and informing a response for issues that arise from system vulnerabilities.
LIVE EVENT THREAT INTELLIGENCE
Having a digital window on events while they take place is necessary for understanding threats to a facility or geographic area. Corporate security risk analysts need to know what’s happening on location in order to understand risk factors. That means monitoring multiple sources including social media to anticipate threats to the organization and people they are protecting.
“Next to the physical presence of security people, we realized using online discovery for events is a totally new dimension and very, very useful.”
