In the past, company security personnel were concerned with things like the theft of company equipment or computer hackers breaking through the company's firewall and planting computer viruses. While these types of crimes are still a concern, employers have new safety risks to deal with:
- Assault and kidnapping.
- Chemical and biological terrorism.
- Theft of hazardous materials.
- Penetration of secure areas.
- Misuse of classified materials.
Having some fear is normal and helps people remain vigilant, but providing a secure workplace can reduce these types of risks.
