Approaches to corporate security

Wikipedia divides corporate security to 12 elements:

Core Elements [of corporate security]

Core elements of Corporate Security are:

  • Personal Security
  • Physical Security
  • Information Security
  • Corporate Governance
  • Compliance and Ethics Programs
  • Crime Prevention and Detection
  • Fraud deterrence
  • Investigations
  • Risk Management
  • Business continuity planning
  • Crisis management
  • Environment, Safety and Health


I have seen similar categories with other references. The problem with this kind of approach is, that for example, risk and crisis management are cross sectional elements.

Perhaps more conclusive solution would be to define elements from structural or process approach.

In structural approach elements might be 1) personal security, 2) property security and 3) information security.

With process approach, you could divide elements to 1) production security, 2) sales security) and 3) support security.

And with threat approach you could use 1) crime and 2) fraud security.

Solution approach could be 1) risk management, 2) crisis management, 3) insurance politics, 4) information protection, 5) personnel protection and 6) property protection.
