Key Security Challenges Facing Companies Today

The biggest security threats to companies today differ somewhat according to their industry, but they generally include network disruptions, facility disruptions, asset losses, and information breaches. These threats are becoming more acute today, as multinational companies are basing more of their operations in developing countries where the risk of security breaches and business disruptions is greater due to high crime rates, weak law enforcement, poor infrastructure, and less stable political environments. For example, manufacturing and back office operations are often run out of India, Philippines, China, and so on. Sales and marketing operations are also on the rise throughout Asia, Latin America, and Africa as companies try to expand their emerging market presence.

Because business environments today rely heavily on technology, so too have security threats become increasingly “digital.” Consequently, the physical security at data centers and other facilities providing access to network infrastructure has necessarily grown in importance. Effective access control, authentication procedures, and active monitoring and response are all critical.
