Be Alert

The earlier you can spot the signs of a potential threat arising, the more choices you have to avoid risk.

Last Updated 15 April 2024

Hostile actors may seek to catch you off-guard during your normal day-to-day activities. They may not distinguish between your personal and work life and could try to understand your routines and habits to their advantage. 

Adopting a security mindset can help you to stay aware in everyday situations and quickly spot issues as they emerge. The earlier you identify a threat, the more options you will have to respond to it. Being fully aware of your surroundings in everyday life can help you make informed decisions quickly.

Ultimately, you are responsible for your safety and security. Being aware of what is happening around you can give you space to think and react in time. Staying alert and using common sense to understand the situation can help you to anticipate, manage and avoid risks.
