Security Risk Management

Graham Marshall - Friday, February 22, 2013

Businesses involved in the supply chain of hazardous chemicals which could be used by Terrorists are encouraged to consider adopting relevant security risk management controls.

Security risk management should be a normal part of good business practice in such businesses.

It should be part of your business culture and integrated into your business philosophy.

The treatment of security threats will be specific to your business and may include a combination of measures.

As a minimum, you should identify the security gaps and find out where chemicals could be lost or diverted from your business and find their way into the wrong hands.

And remember, all suspicious incidents and security breaches should be investigated and, if necessary, reported to the National Security Hotline on 1800 1234 00.

Examples include:

+   Attempts to purchase chemicals for no clear purpose, with cash, or with identification that appears fraudulent;

+   Doors not secured, holes in fences, signs of illegal entry;

+   Unauthorized entry into restricted areas;

+   Unexplained signs of vehicle activity in restricted or remote access points;

+   Unexplained requests for technical information about a facility;

+   Major unexplained process upsets;

+   Unexplained losses of containment of chemicals;

+   Unexplained losses of chemicals; and

+   Major cyber attack on internal process controls or inventory systems.
