THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD SECURITY
By Joel Deeb/ Chairman/CEO/ Omega Military Consultant
THE IMPORTANCE OF SECURITY PLANNING Is not just about physical attack. It might take the form of attacks on vital information orcommunication systems, causing disruption and economic damage. Some attacks are easier to carry out if the attacker is assisted either directly or indirectly by an ‘insider', or by someone with specialist knowledge or access.

There is little point investing in costly security measures if they can be easily undermined by a disaffected insider, or by a recruitment process that permits people wanting to cause harm to infiltrate your organisation.
Anyone seeking to enhance security should conduct a risk assessment to determine which measures are appropriate (exactly what are you trying to protect yourself against, how, from whom, where might it come from, how likely i
