Security goes beyond your physical structures. It now stretches across and into your internal infrastructural setup, these days, all your computer and electrical installations, those behind the scenes operations which if you take your eyes away from for a while could easily be forgotten about. And you dare not do that these days. Good governance risk and compliance is just so essential for every business, including yours. If things go wrong, it affects not just your business but that of your clients as well. And you surely cannot afford to let that happen. There is a lot more than your good reputation at stake.
Have an assessment done today, just to make sure of your business, to put it that way. And please, readers, do not worry about the costs. Because the cost of circumventing and sidetracking security imperatives and government risk and compliance requirements are just far too costly to ignore, for both the short term and the long term. What other way would you rather have it then? Even so, efficiency of purpose can provide assurances that costs expended are not going to waste. That would be part and parcel of good risk management practices in any case. It is a sustainable development, didn’t you know.
Security assessments, if they are carried out correctly, could get up close and personal. You had best be prepared for that. You need not warn your staff about this. It is your business and it is your prerogative. And you have already laid down the ground rules for them, have you not. They have been given enough commonsensical warnings in this regard. And if they were not, it could be surprising that you are still operating at the current rate. There will be cybersecurity program readiness assessments to look forward to.
