Protecting an Environment
Whether you have responsibility for security within your organisation or managing a security portfolio of global assets, there are some key protective security principles that are common to all.
Getting the basics right, conducting risk assessments, and completing operational requirements will help to ensure the safeguards you recommend are necessary and proportional.
Ensuring senior management and the board understand the security risks and are too engaged by leading from the top down will assisting in fostering a culture where security is seen as a business enabler.
Understanding the appropriate security interventions to use physical, personnel, and cyber, will help in developing the security strategy.
