Seeking The Truth For Our Clients

   “If you want peace, prepare for War!”

People:  The issue with most people, is not, “What is the right thing to do?”  The issue is that we (people) choose to do what we want to do.  Do we choose to do the right thing, or the wrong thing? 
Yes!  We all do both!

“For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate.”   …    Romans 7:15  

Doing the right thing requires learning, wisdom, and appropriate choices. Most find, along the way, that we learn to act, within appropriate rules, rightly, and treat other persons, the way we wish to be treated.

We are in the company of People, your organization’s greatest asset!    
People are the problem!  Threats, and theft, come from people.  
People within your organization are your greatest threat.
Attitudes, and general morality, are complex.      

If it is perceived, that Management does not care, or is not responding appropriately, to bad behavior, then morale, and productivity, will be adversely affected.  

Too often, this results in theft, sabotage, and work stoppages.

Balancing control, security, and freedom is an art.  Corporate culture has the greatest influence in maintaining a proper balance.   

Do you test for personal integrity, and honesty, when conducting “new hire” investigations?  

People are the solution:  Effective policies, procedures, and training allow people to be your solution.  Our Parabellum Team will assist in training for securing peace, and prosperity.  

Consistent, and fair, Personnel and Security Policies and Procedures will help you create a positive environment.  Employees and associates will treat each other with dignity, knowing they have management’s support.  
We need rules and structure. But, we also must be free to create.  Your organization is far more likely to achieve peace and prosperity, when everyone is part of a unified team. Common goals are: productively working together, human dignity, freedom, and security.  

Threats:  Every company is a unique combination of people, physical, and intellectual assets, culture, and circumstances.  For your company to survive and prosper, it must mitigate losses from theft, violence, and various forms of man-made disruption.   

Each organization needs to be studied individually, and independently, to learn which security principles apply to that specific situation, culture, and environment.
Risk Assessment:  A professional Risk Assessment is your best option to design effective assets protection, and personnel security.  

The Consultant conducting the study should not be related to the company.   An unbiased perspective is critical to a true evaluation of risks, and establishing appropriate countermeasures.     

The study should focus on people.  Appropriate interviews with key persons within the company will unveil the truth.  The Consultant should be skilled at listening, and personnel observation. Your organization has enemies! They are at work, in opposition, to your safety, your security, and your prosperity!

Security:  Security in your organization is a dynamic combination of prevention, investigations, and training.
Without security, an organization will have neither peace, nor prosperity. Security’s goals include keeping our company viable, limiting losses, and protecting people and property. 

Objectives may include:
a. identify, acknowledge, and mitigate, potential threats;  
b. prevent losses with effective and well trained security personnel, technical strategies: including hardware/software, IT (cyber and proprietary information), company policies, procedures, and appropriate training at all levels;   
c. develop and maintain a continually monitored HR/Security Program, that balances strategies of effective security, with strategies, for appropriate employee freedom, and dignity;   
d. work within an appropriate and reasonable budget;  
e. create a culture of honest, unified people.  

Prevention:  Preventing a loss is always less expensive, then paying for it later.  Appropriate personnel, systems, policies, procedures, and culture will work in harmony, if implemented with a commitment toward reasonable and right values.

Investigations:  Investigations and documentation of the truth of incidents, and potential threats, is essential for building a secure foundation.  If workplace incidents are litigated, proper documentation will allow accuracy and reduce legal expenses. True knowledge is the legitimate currency of the investigative process.  Untrue knowledge is counterfeit, doing more harm than no knowledge.
Training:  Training emphasizes the value the company places on protecting people and property.  It reinforces the rules of behavior.

Employees and associates should be taught to respond (mentally/thinking), rather than to react (emotionally/feeling), to threats, and/or incidents.

Employees need to understand that they have a responsibility to continually reinforce security awareness, and to support the company’s prevention policies, procedures, and protocols. 

This will allow the most appropriate response to a threat, or an incident. This will positively affect the organization’s culture.  
Culture:  A positive, and responsible, culture will allow training in truthful expectations, and mutual respect, for one another.  This will lead to a greater relative importance of each individual’s:  Safety, Security, Dignity, Productivity, and Belongingness!
“Corporate culture is the total sum of the values, customs, traditions and meanings that make a company unique. Corporate culture is often called "the character of an organization" since it embodies the vision of the company’s founders. The values of a corporate culture influence the ethical standards within a corporation, as well as managerial behavior.”   Wikipedia

Management:  Management has the greatest effect on your culture.  Management sets the tone for the entire company.  If the employees feel that the CEO is selfishly wasting resources, then the associates will feel justified in stealing. 

Sound security begins at the top, and can only be implemented, when modeled properly!
         “Prepare for War!”   

“ PARABELLUM” is from Latin:         
         “If, you want peace, Prepare for War!”
