Insider threat, cyber attacks, and an active shooter incident are real threats in today’s world. But, being prepared for the worst provides a safe environment every day and contributes to the well being of operational requirements; and more.
There needs to be preventative efforts. Using best practices will start an effective path that will not only enhance security, but provide operational, emergency and crisis preparation for the protection and preparedness of the environment.
Security requires a holistic approach. It is also best when it is embraced on a top down manner. Gone are the days when police alone can protect an environment by themselves. Security, real security needs to be embraced at every level. It requires management down to every employee, and even other individuals who are part of the work environment.
In short, it takes the community to protect the environment.
