Rank Your Risk With a Security Risk Assessment

Stay calm, but get real. That's the motto I'd put on a T-shirt to wrap up a good approach to security in commercial facilities. You can't just sashay away from risk, wishfully thinking that just because X event has never happened it never will. You can't just shut your eyes and pretend that what you don't know about won't hurt you in the end. But you also can't freak out and hyper-harden every weakness in your facility because A) you don't have the money and B) it's impossible. 

What you can do is stay calm, do a thorough security risk assessment, and focus on mitigating the vulnerabilities that would hurt your facility or organization the most. Read this article to find out how to get started.
