Leveraging the SAFETY Act: Building an Effective Security Program

As enterprises face increasingly dynamic risks to their business—including attacks that can entail physical, technological, and especially operational impacts—a common question posed by many organizations is, “How do I know whether I have an effective security program in place?”

Too many enterprises equate compliance programs with effective security, resulting in investments and decisions that leave the enterprise vulnerable to attack and related liability. In a physical security context, terrorist organizations have demonstrated an enduring capacity to continue to radicalize a diverse set of actors. Likewise, recent cyber-attacks (while not terrorism-related) have resulted in significant operational disruptions costing individual businesses as much as $300 million and crippling business operations for weeks.

Join us for Leveraging the SAFETY Act—Building an Effective Security Program to understand the changing nature of enterprise security risks, SAFETY Act implications and how a proven risk management approach can help your enterprise build and maintain an effective risk management program.

Wednesday, December 6th
2:00pm – 2:30pm ET
