Establish the building blocks of an effective security program. Recruit a proven leader and define a three-year strategy.
To manage risk to a business or government agency, security program management needs to evolve continually. Gaps can emerge and undermine the program’s effectiveness. Deficits in leadership can be costly. The absence of a clear, multi-year strategy can muddy priorities. A “bolt-on” approach to security after a wave of M&A activity can whisk away planned acquisition synergies. And poor coordination in security across a corporation’s business units can drive up costs and obscure total security expenditures.
Are you aligning your security strategy, structure, people, processes and technologies with your greatest risks and most strategic objectives? Do you need to recruit an experienced CSO or Director of Security? Communicate the critical role played by the security program to key executives? Hillard Heintze works closely with clients to build, improve and sustain comprehensive and high-performance security and risk management programs that are cost effective, mitigate risks and advance business and mission objectives.
