Effective security relies on people behaving in the right way. This is enabled through an understanding of the threat and a clear understanding of what is required of them. In this way, an organisation's people play a significant role in the detection, deterrence and prevention of security threats.
The development of an appropriate security culture, where the right security behaviours are adopted by the workforce, is essential to an organisation's protective security regime.
Used the right way, your staff, guard force, contractors, visitors, suppliers and the general public can be a huge force multiplier, at a relatively low cost, in strengthening your resilience to security threats and reducing your vulnerability to attack.
