Broadening Security Concerns in the Workplace
Most probably think the greatest risk to their operational safety is an active shooter, but there are far more insidious incidents that can compromise operational security and employee safety on a daily basis.
Other concerns now factor into the equation such as domestic violence manifesting as workplace violence, employees falling prey to violence outside of the workplace or on assignment, or security breaches more related to "social engineering" than to cyber attacks. Also, what happens if your own people are externally compromised through bribery or blackmail schemes, putting them at the bidding of those seeking internal access to your operations? And how does all of this also factor into potential claims of "negligence" if pursued in court? What is the legal strategy behind such cases and how can you more proactively mitigate such HR risks and liabilities?
Such scenarios and prevention strategies will be the focus of our program on October 5th with our special guest speaker, Jeff McKissack, President of Defense By Design.
