Compliance and Policy
Ensuring that relevant policies, guidelines, procedures and other internal rules and regulations include the necessary measures to achieve a holistic information security cover within an organisation.
Crisis Management is an integral part of an organisation’s policy and overall business continuity planning. Whiterock runs specific scenarios for relevant departmental staff and executives to prepare the organisation to deal with a live loss of information through unauthorised surveillance.
Our risk assessments provide a crucial snapshot of how vulnerable your organisation is to a physical espionage attack, including the deployment of unauthorised surveillance equipment and typical threats to your confidential business information.
A third of UK employees throw sensitive documents in the bin instead of shredding them
67% of confidential meetings have personal mobile smartphones which could record, be hacked, or accidentally transmit the conversation live anywhere in the world

70% of organisations do not have a counter espionage plan within their organisation's policy
Promoting a culture of awareness and change in behaviour, employees who are better equipped to recognise and prevent information loss.
A strong set of policies and procedures are essential to ensure that your business operations are consistent, compliant and resilient. We review your security policies in relation to espionage risk, advising on areas of vulnerability, and how to avoid or address them.
Preparation for how to respond in a crisis is key to effective containment, minimising reputational and financial damages, as well as avoiding panic and chaos.
Understanding your espionage threat risk and where the organisation is vulnerable to unauthorised surveillance should form a critical part of any business function and will help guide and develop protective countermeasures for now and the future.
‘The majority of information leakage occurs due to human error but can be easily avoided by basic corporate espionage awareness training.’

‘Security of information is an area between physical security of people/property and IT security that is often given insufficient priority in security planning. It is however, an area where successful penetration could lead to serious damage and loss of reputation.’
