Risk Assessments or Risk Analysis is the process of identifying
areas of potential & actual loss and the appropriate development of cost
effective countermeasures to nullify the identifiable risks/losses found.
Contained within the approach to any assessment is the concept
of security being a comprehensive integrated function positively contributing
significantly to a Company’s financial aims and objectives.
The fundamental aim of any risk assessment is the protection
of people, facilities, equipment and other assets against reasonably anticipated
threats through the unobtrusive utilization of cost effective security, policies
Every business and/or industry has it’s own individual exposures
to a variety of risks, threats and losses.
In the case of loss, there are two identifiable & distinctive types;
losses are more easily identified as being Theft, Fraud,
Burglary, Contractual Loss etc….
losses are harder to detect e.g. loss
of potential custom, negative staff motivation, disgruntled employees, high
staff turnover, bullying, lack of goodwill and loyalty from workforce etc….
These exposures could be easily identified and determined
through the independent observations of an Experienced Security Consultant reviewing
and reporting the situation, advising the Client where they are most vulnerable
to risks, threats and losses.
Risks and Threats can be classified into three distinctive
Classes. They are as follows-:
This class of Risk/Threat can be disastrous in its effect,
i.e. in the eventually that it may occur the Company could be put out of business
or have its reputation or interest so seriously damaged that its continued existence
would be problematic.
