Continuancy will work with their clients’ Human Resources, Information Technology, Physical Security and front line operations managers to develop a converged approach to managing risk that will ensure the protection of the business, its people and its assets.
Converged risk occurs when a combination of physical and IT risks merge to become a unified threat. The incredible and continued advances in IT make attacks through the cyber domain an effective and less risky method of attacking a business. The power of the cyber technologies is seeing physical security defences being bypassed, in most cases when the attack is initiated from within the organisation.
Continuancy will work with the relevant departments to develop a converged model for analysing the risk. Simply put, this will ensure that the company employs the right people, affords them access to appropriate places and provides them with operationally necessary access permissions when using the company’s systems.
