The impact of an incident on your organisation can greatly depend on several factors:
- Awareness of the potential issues involved
- Being prepared for such situations
- Having definite, structured, procedures in place for handling the incidents that do occur
Firstly ensuring that staff are aware of the types of incidents that can occur, the warning signs and the potential impact on the organisation, customers and themselves, is a vital factor in spotting and preventing embarrassing and damaging incidents. Many security related incidents that appear in the press have revolved around a lack of awareness on behalf of employees. Likewise many frauds, IP theft and industrial espionage have gone unnoticed far longer than they should, due to lack of training and awareness of key personnel.
