Examples of risk /Other/ASSACOUK/Other%20Images/General/AA-thieves_524x224.jpg Some examples of the kind of risks organisations face that we must deal with: Threats to people From acts of terrorism to armed robbery, harassment of staff or hostage taking, the threat to people must be taken most seriously of all. Threats to property Both theft and physical damage to property, ranging from arson attacks and acts of terrorism to simple vandalism, can have a devastating financial effect. Threats to information If confidential data is stolen or compromised or vital records are destroyed, the future viability of a business can be jeopardised. Threats to cash Special precautions must be taken to protect stocks of cash and other portable and easily traded assets that are highly vulnerable to theft. Threats of the future Organisations develop over time, growing (or contracting) and meeting new circumstances and challenges. A security strategy must adapt and cope.
