When a CEO receives a threatening letter it’s rarely just a one-off incident. However, it’s surprising to realize how frequently these notes are tossed in the trash and treated without concern. Will Plummer, Chief Security Officer of RaySecur, knows first-hand how mail is a bellwether to many other security events, and when ignored, can cause very avoidable turmoil for corporate security teams and the people they protect.
Will speaks with host Chuck Randolph on the importance of screening procedures in mail rooms and how easily address information can be obtained online and needs to be monitored with the same vigilance — especially in the wake of controversial decisions or lay-offs. For more information, check out Will’s 2021 Annual Mail Security Report containing valuable insights for mail and physical security teams.
