In Bringing a Corporate Security Culture to Life, presenter Peter Cheviot, former vice president of corporate security for BAX Global Inc., discusses how to build and maintain a corporate security culture that encourages company employees to take ownership of security and facilitates communication. In this 18-minute video presentation of narrated slides, the concept of "security culture" is defined, and Cheviot explains how it can improve the effectiveness of security and risk management programs.
Security culture refers to the idea that the security manager must encourage shared ownership of and accountability for the organization’s security program among all employees. In this presentation, the ways to achieve a good security culture are outlined. They include impressing the return on investment (ROI) of security services, designating security ambassadors for various functional areas of the business, providing training, connecting with senior management, and sharing security program performance results.
When employees and other business stakeholders feel that they have ownership over security policies, the results are higher compliance, return on investment, and net gains through continuous improvements. The tools and recommendations found in Bringing a Corporate Security Culture to Life will help security managers and their teams achieve these results.
Bringing a Corporate Security Culture to Life is a part of Elsevier’s Security Executive Council Risk Management Portfolio, a collection of real world solutions and "how-to" guidelines that equip executives, practitioners, and educators with proven information for successful security and risk management programs.
