The decision to harden the physical security of your building can bring up many questions: What are our biggest risks? Where are we most vulnerable? What should we fix first? Physical security risk assessments can answer these questions and put building owners and operations managers on a path toward greater safety and peace of mind. A security site assessment or physical security risk assessment is an evaluation conducted by a security professional that includes an inventory of the assets to be protected, as well as recommendations on how best to protect them. They’re appropriate for nearly any organization –from schools to corporate headquarters, to sporting arenas, manufacturing plants, and municipalities.
Security risk assessment combines risk identification, risk analysis, and risk evaluation. Risk identification is the first step in the process and focuses on identifying the source of risk and potential events that could impact an organization's objectives. Risk identification also provides insight into the interaction between a risk and associated threats. Such insight is an important process as each organization has a unique context and, therefore, needs to focus on different risks. Once an organization's risks are identified and analyzed, DISC security engineers provide practical, cost-effective measures designed specifically to reduce or manage risks.

Traditional cybersecurity practices relied on the age-old maxim, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. But here’s the biggest truth about modern cybersecurity: There’s no such thing as foolproof security, and bug-free software is an oxymoron. From the ’90’s script kiddies to present-day state-sponsored actors and cybercrime syndicates, attacks have grown in cost and sophistication. Today, the practice of cybersecurity is not just about building defenses to prevent intrusion; it’s as much about detecting the ever-so-subtle presence of a silent intruder to dislodge the threat in its tracks.
