Organisations today constantly fail to recognise the need to identify and assess their risk exposure, before implementing security measures and/or technology. It is simple to install a set of security system and considered that the threats are mitigated. Little thoughts and efforts have been put in to analyse the security gap, to determine the risk exposure and designing a holistic cost-effective security plan. To appreciate the importance of enhancing security for the facility, with a tight budget, one must first consider the following questions:
– What assets are you protecting?
– What are the assets value to your business?
– What threats are you protecting against?
– What are the consequences if the threat occurs?
Organisations cannot remove all of the possible threats they face or eliminate risks. Security measures need to be put in place to protect the most valuable and critical assets. In AIP Risk Consulting, we believe in designing resilience in the protection of assets and infrastructure. This is to ensure that your business is able to cope with an attack, continue business operations and recover to normality as soon as possible.
AIP Risk Consulting uses risk-based approach to Security Planning. Through semi-quantitative assessment approach, which involves identification of threats, an evaluation on the effectiveness of existing control mechanism, analysing damages/impact and prioritising the order of severity, AIP Risk Consulting is able to tailor a security plan to mitigate specific threats and minimize disruption to client’s businesses. Security planning involves developing security policies and implementing controls to keep risks at bay.
