In security, unveiling risk refers to showing the customer where potential loss of value lies. It may not be as straight forward as predicted, it’s a process that involves expert assessment of the premises and environment in order to know where the potential dangers lie.
At Opticom we employ the onion ring method. This is an outward in method. During this process, the dangers and risks are clearly identified and solutions are modified to fit the customer’s needs and wants. At the end of this process it is clear to the client the security measures that should be put in place to curb risk.
Countries, organizations, as well as individuals can gain a lot from this process. Nice, France is the most recent victim of a terror attack. It occurred on Thursday, 14th July 2016 when Mohamed Bouhlel, a 31-year-old driver and Nice resident who was born in Tunisia, drove a rented, refrigerated truck into crowds along a 2-kilometer stretch of Promenade des Anglais, killing 84 people and injuring 202 others. Sadly, Nice is just the latest city to be hit by a terror attack. Istanbul, Orlando, Baghdad, Brussels and Dhaka in Bangladesh are among targets hit in recent months. Who would have thought a terror attack would take this form?
In the hotel industry, the active shooter is the greatest threat at the moment as opposed to the bomb explosions that are expected. As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure. Unveiling risk is the first step towards a safer environment. Security in life nor business is never guaranteed but by unveiling risk and deploying safety measures, one may sleep easy at night.
Tim Chege, Chairman & CEO Optimum Security UK and Opticom Kenya says, “having an assessment and knowing the risk that one is likely to face and putting in place measures to mitigate that risk, one is more likely to feel safer and comfortable in an environment that they previously felt unsafe in thus making them much more productive.”
