December 2018 Business Continuity Tip

See Something? Say Something!

Do you notice something odd, or different, and think you should mention it? Do! Resolution to security incidents rests on one thing: Time. Fast response to a security incident relies on fast reporting.

Security incidents can come in three domains: cyber, physical, or people. For example, a phishing email is a cyber threat. A messy desk with passwords written on a sticky note is a physical risk. An unfamiliar person in a restricted area of your building, unaccompanied by an employee, is a red alert in the people domain.

It never hurts to double check what you notice, or report your suspicions. You could avert a security risk that otherwise would have gone undetected for days, months, or even years.
