Security Begins By Understanding the Scope of the Challenge


If you’ve got a business, you need someone responsible for its physical and data security. If the business is large enough, that would be a Chief Security Officer, or CSO.

Aspects of a CSO’s job are discussed in a Security Infowatch post.

“As security programs become more comprehensive and technically advanced, “Infowatch notes, “so do the expectations of companies who have a top security official in place. CSOs with technical backgrounds must also understand compliance, regulation, security, and risk beyond the data center…”

“Companies need to plan for all conceivable man-made and natural occurrences, ranging from hurricanes to network malware attacks. Calling a contract security company for help in the middle of Hurricane Harvey, for example, will not be fruitful.” Or in the midst of any other security challenge, either.

A good place to begin is to give full attention to the Infowatch post – a full reading of a rather lengthy advisory. It’s by Ty L. Richmond, President, Integrated Security Solutions and Technology for Allied Universal, “the largest provider of security services in North America.”
