Management of corporate security - New Approaches and Future Challenges

Uredniški uvodnik - doc. dr. Denis Čaleta, mag. Miran Vršec

Globalization of the world and the globalization of security indirectly confront the modern society with challenging issues, i.e., how to further build its development upon major concepts of free movement of goods, services and people, and on the other hand, handle the threat at an acceptable level of risk. The dynamic security environment constantly confronts us with the dilemma of whether we are doing enough to manage the risks to which the business is exposed in our organization.

Constant emergence of new threats and risks accompanied by business in a global environment, which can be very different from the traditional environments in which we have operated so far adds a particularly challenging dimension to this dynamics. National security and national security entities are not the only stakeholders which can fully guarantee the safety of the social environment in which our organizations operate. International economic connectivity and strengthening of international corporations in providing adequate security environment significantly require adequate cooperation between public and private sectors. Only close cooperation of various entities at the national and international levels, could provide reasonable assurance that the prevention of threats and risks can be successful. Raising awareness of the need for integrated risk management and implementation of integrated solutions in the field of security is the essential and vital component that will make our organization more flexible and better prepared to meet the requirements of the environment. Corporate security must have an extremely important place in this system. Countless examples of deviance, which we have witnessed in the public and business environment shows us that the state of corporate security in the perception of strategic management transition countries is not properly positioned. The absence of an adequate level of safety awareness and safety culture is already reflected in the owners, who are the first that first need to have interest in the safety and manageability of the condition of their property. These patterns logically continue through the structures that strategically manage the organizations and are in the low state reflected in all parts of the organization.


Nataša Pirc Musar,
Information Commissioner, Republic of Slovenia

Both, corporate and, by no doubt, public sector environments are sensitive to the practices of the people who do not wish well for the society. Because of the numerous corrupt and depraved personalities among us, who refuse to respect any social rules and lack morality, there is a constant need to protect sensitive information. However, in order to be able to hide information from bad people, one must not forget that transparency counts and brings a lot of benefits to the world we live in. And as US Justice Potter Stewart once said: "When everything is classified, nothing is classified, and the system becomes one to be disregarded by the cynical or the careless, to be manipulated by those intent on self-protection or self-promotion."

Therefore when classifying information, one must never forget the proportionality principle and hence protect for a limited period of time only the information which is really necessary to be protected.

Mr. Stanislav Veniger
Director General, Slovenian Police

Adjusting to changing circumstances, developing the organization's potentials and establishing partner relations with the citizens are representing the core of the Slovene police development's vision, which is aiming at enabling qualitative life and maintaining security as recognizable feature of Slovenia.

It is also important to stress the individual's responsibility for own personal safety, safety of others and their property. This principle should be applied mutatis mutandis to the level of private and public companies and organizations.

Gregor Majcen, Director
Government Office for the Protection of Classified Information (NSA)

Challenges in the field of corporative security call for a systemic approach and cooperation between different experts as risk management and good corporative environment play a crucial role in the market performance of companies. We must also bear in mind that security can only be provided through collective effort. The Institute for Corporative Security Studies as the umbrella organisation is an excellent platform where the activities of individual stakeholders become part of a joint effort. The present book is yet another proof of this.
