Enhancing Situational Awareness and Managing Risks: The Importance of Risk Assessment and Automated Procedures for Physical Security in Government Agencies
Risk management is a vital aspect of government operations as it helps to ensure the safety and security of both employees and the public. One of the key components of risk management is increasing situational awareness through risk assessment and automated procedures for physical security. This session will cover how risk assessments assist with identifying and evaluating potential hazards and threats that could impact an agency’s operations, including natural disasters, cyberattacks and physical security breaches. By identifying these risks in advance, agencies can take steps to mitigate or prevent them from happening. Automated procedures for physical security, such as security cameras and access control systems, also enhance the agency’s ability to detect and respond to potential security breaches in real time, increasing situational awareness.
