Space-Age Times & Stone-Age Minds
Despite the advancement of modern technology related to safety and security, we are still challenged by the human beings using this technology. Cameras, alarms and access controls do little good if your people let or even "invite" the wrong people in.
Likewise, if you have a workforce that is primarily outside of the workplace interacting with an (unknown) public, cameras, alarms and access controls no longer apply, and yet you are just as liable for their safety and security in the field as those who work in the office. And in data security, firewalls do little to mitigate your risks if outside forces hack your "people" instead of your computers through various social engineering schemes, including bribery and blackmail. So, what is the answer?
We asked noted risk management and threat assessment strategist, Jeff McKissack, President of Defense By Design, to help us address these issues and challenges.
