Implementing Corporate Security Strategies
Increasingly, corporate leaders are integrating proactive security strategies into their critical business functions to protect CEOs and other C-level employees, but why?
1. Proactive vs Reactive
Smart companies base their risk management strategies on a proactive process of risk analysis and mitigation, corporate culture and personal preference.
2. Safeguard shareholder investment
Highly prominent business leaders are often more at risk from “persons of interest” due to their notoriety. Potential threats to a prominent CEO can equal “celebrities”.
Boards also consider the business and investor impact of an accident occurring, as corporate reputations and share prices are closely linked to a CEO’s wellbeing.
3. Higher productivity and safer travel
Executive protection keeps people safe, but also enables higher productivity by ensuring greater efficiency across all travel and logistics.
Secure travel minimises interruptions, turns travel time into work time, and ensures CEO’s gain more contact with customers, employees, suppliers and other key stakeholders worldwide.
4. Duty of care
Duty of care is paramount. Given the circumstances of CEOs and other employees, many boards aim to meet a certain standard of care in order to avoid negligence.
In the current climate, corporate entities cannot afford to be complacent when it comes to adequately protecting a business’ employees, physical property and information systems.
