The Need For Security
Security, not only as a theoretical concept but even more importantly as a viable business strategy, has been swept under the carpet and relegated to the realm of “necessary evil” for far too long. Our post-9/11 world, coupled with the realities of today’s economy, makes the practice of security a virtual necessity for the businessplace. No longer can the protection of an organization’s assets be relegated to good fortune and happenchance. Rather, a systematic approach to assure that everything reasonable is being done to guarantee an organization’s safety and financial well-being by keeping its assets under control is of vital importance. And the marketing of the concept of protective efforts is a job that must be continually and actively engaged in by security professionals, since the rest of the organization’s managers are frequently concerned only with their own financial bottom line.
