Corporate Response and Guidelines for Security

  • Richard Clutterbuck
Part of the RUSI Defence Studies Series book series (RUSIDS)


A corporation facing the risk of malicious violence in the years ahead can be compared with a farmer facing the risk of natural disasters: fires, floods, droughts or gales. He cannot forecast the weather for a year or even a month ahead but he knows that he is likely to have to face most of these hazards at some time in his working life in varying degrees of severity. He does not know which will hit him, or how, or when, but he studies the form that each is likely to take from past experience tempered by his prediction of changing circumstances. He then takes precautionary measures to minimize the damage that any of them can do him and he diversifies to ensure that none of them can ruin him completely. Thereafter he keeps his precautions in good shape.
