Last month QRisk discussed the fact that recent events had prompted organisations to stop and complete a security review of their operations, to understand their gaps, saying that whilst it was appropriate for businesses to do so, the focus needed to be on safeguarding people at their workplace and beyond the workplace.
QRisk are problem solvers, people trainers and organisational fixers, and are there to help with their expertise to resolve your risk issues. As they say,
effective security risk reviews can prevent incidents occurring, reduce the impact of when they do occur, and keep your company’s name from appearing in the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons. More importantly though, the focus for doing the review should be people wellbeing and resilience through a lens of safety and security.
Any organisation that truly cares first about their people safety and their brand’s reputation will be open to the support provided by QRisk. Quite often they find organisations with good knowledge around health and safety but often there is a lack of awareness and ownership of security.
Security is managed by people and supported by systems and process, therefore QRisk will always recommend that any implementation programme, as a result of a security review, is accompanied by a clear change management plan, including support tools, such as practical critical incident management flip charts and or a lean 5s program to make changes evolutionary rather than revolutionary.
Your security review will be bespoke to your organisation, and you will have unique cirucmstances that present different risks. An initial discussion will identify this at a high level and then you can dig into a bit more detail.
In summary and as a starter you should look at the following if its relevant for you,
