Security Risk Management

Protecting people and assets in the current security climate

With so much happening in the security environment at the moment it’s a good time to reflect on what leading organisations are doing to reassure their personnel and ensure that realistic security risks are being mitigated. The term ‘security’ is a broad one, so characterising it here, and especially in view of statements made at the Commonwealth level, is important.

Within the security industry practitioners tend to regard security in the ‘protective’ sense; that is, what we do to protect the safety of people. It is natural enough given that the very legal obligation stems from workplace health and safety laws. Of course security also plays a major role in the protection of assets (think equipment, information, buildings etc.), operations, brand and reputation, through a range of methods.

Within the current environment, proactive security managers will have, shortly after the National Terrorism Alert Level was increased to HIGH (a terrorist attack is likely), communicated to employees a statement of the current situation and what it means for them. The Prime Minister’s website (www.pm.gov.au) contains a range of media releases and even a YouTube video articulating how people should react to the statements. So too does the National Security website (www.nationalsecurity.gov.au), which is maintained by the Commonwealth Attorney General's Department.
