This article was originally featured on SecurityInformed.com
Technology continues to transform the physical security industry, helping companies become more aware of the full spectrum of risks their organization faces. Our new survey provides strong evidence that the use of these tools is solving some problems, but their implementation may create new challenges.
In our 2022 State of Protective Intelligence Report, 93% of respondents said their company was actively adopting new threat intelligence, monitoring and alerting solutions for physical security, cybersecurity, human resources, legal and compliance, but they don’t have a comprehensive strategy for holistic data analysis and reporting. Companies are now receiving multiple streams of new intelligence and information without a way to make the information quickly actionable.
Several Negative Impacts
In short, teams responsible for physical security are nearing information overload. That finding was reinforced by another survey response. When we asked security, legal, and compliance professionals what they saw as their biggest challenges in 2022, 40% of respondents said their top concern is the problem of how to manage threat data, up from 32% in 2021.
