External Threats

External threatsCorporations, midsize and even small businesses are challenged with threats from within and from outside of the organization. Dealing with external threats can be one of the most problematic and time consuming and come in a wide variety of types.
Theft of intellectual property, bid rigging, counterfeiting goods, EEOC investigations and corrupt vendors are just a few of the examples of the types of threats that can cause material damage to any company. In many instances, the damage can lead to regulatory and compliance issues, hurt credibility with lenders and investors and damage relations with key partners and stakeholders. For larger corporations, it is possible to face multiple threats on different fronts at the same time. Threats from outside the company can be an overwhelming problem for the human resources, corporate counsel and security executives who may have overlapping responsibilities and limited installed internal resources.
