The business environment in India is complex and filled with competing requirements, interests and incentives that must be balanced and managed effectively to ensure the achievement of key organizational objectives. The safety, security and resilience of these organizations are threatened by an array of hazards, including acts of terrorism, malicious activity in cyberspace, pandemics, man-made accidents, transnational crime and natural disasters. At the same time, risks associated with workforce management, acquisitions, operations and project costs must also be managed.
Security India helps manage these external and internal risks, that have the potential to cause loss of life and assets, injuries, negative psycho-social impact, loss of economic activity, reduction of ability to perform essential functions and help enhance the confidence of workforce in the management capabilities.
