Asset Protection is Inherent to Business

The protection of an organization's assets must be an integral part of its overall business strategy. In tight economic times, companies supposedly can't afford risk assessments; but these are exactly the times when they're most needed. Many businesses do not have the proprietary expertise to objectively assess their security vulnerabilities; they need outside assistance. A risk assessment conducted without a professional security practitioner is like a medical diagnosis conducted without a licensed physician.

Maximizing value and profit is not only a function of promoting the sale of goods or services; it is also a function of asset protection.
