Independent Business Security Risk Assessment

The Independent Business Security Risk Assessment can be beneficial to the experienced Security Manager


Experienced Security Managers may oppose or overlook the benefits of an external, Independent Security Consultant in Business Security Risk Assessment. The Consultant is not undermining the Security Manager’s position but should be seen as an ally providing valuable knowledge and advice. The information from the security risk assessment can be used not only to the security manager’s great benefit but also for the company and even in terms of
health, emergency, and disaster management planning.

THE INDEPENDENT BUSINESS SECURITY RISK ASSESSMENT ALLOWS RISK AND SECURITY TO BECOME EASIER TO COMMUNICATE

In our experience, many Security Managers struggle to present specific security problems to their company’s board or management to request backing or funding.

When doing so alone, his opinion or his case all to often remains unheeded by the decision makers.
Having the detailed Independent Security Assessment report in hand and receiving the facts from an expert and professional outsider will enable the board members to fully understand the risks and threats present. This, in turn, allows for better management and fair allocation of security budgets.

CRIME IS TOO LATE!

Most companies and homeowners often disregard security concerns until they experience a crime or attack. Only after an incident occurs do they allocate significant funds to address the issue. However, this is typically a temporary solution, as another incident may arise or a new problem may replace the original one.

Ultimately, this still results in excessive and unnecessary spending on behalf of the company in terms of security. The Independent Risk Assessment allows for the expenditure in security costs to become more streamlined and stabilized. 

The Security Manager may feel unable to fully disclose the company’s security status, drawbacks, or losses to the board, fearing offense or jeopardizing their position. The independent Security Consultant, being an outsider, has no such constraints and presents the unbiased truth objectively. The detailed Independent Security Risk Assessment report explains weaknesses and vulnerabilities clearly and concisely.
