Physical security threats most often come without warning. Today, every growing organisation needs to be ready to combat such risks to stay ahead in business. Physical security threats can be broadly summarised as events or activities that hamper the growth of an organisation or prevent it from achieving its strategic goals. These threats can emanate from multiple sources and can even be a spillover from incidents or occurrences in other organisations. They are different from day-to-day threats and the nature and magnitude of impact often have larger repercussions on organisations and their people.
In today’s dynamic environment, an organisation faces two kind of challenges - external and internal. The external challenges are of a continuously evolving nature, often arising from the political, social, economic and demographic environment. When coupled with technological advancements, they often become the key sources of security threats for organisations. The internal challenges can be unmapped threats, outdated mitigation plans, collusion and untreated vulnerabilities.
Security threats can take a heavy toll on organisations ranging from loss of human life, loss of organisational assets, financial loss, impact on brand and legal issues to even shutting down of business.
Businesses need to identify these security threats and prepare a mitigation plan for sustenance. The approach has to be proactive to be able to garner maximum benefits and keep pace with the dynamic threat environment surrounding us.
