“The knowledge deficit in personnel security is both large and increasing”

Published: 24 May 2022, 09:00Recent developments in Europe and the consequences in the form of an increased threat to Sweden that the Ukraine situation has brought have shed new light on the need for knowledge and awareness in the area of ​​personnel security. This is the opinion of Pierre Gudmundson, security consultant at the company SRI, which specializes in security linked to humans. “The Ukraine situation has made many decision-makers look up and start looking over their own house. What many organizations are now discovering is that the knowledge deficit in personnel safety is both large and increasing, both at management level and among the individual employee. It is of course alarming, but there are many efforts that can be made in parallel and in a short time to both increase knowledge and build a long-term safety culture. ”Pierre also emphasizes that it is not only recent events that have contributed to these insights but also The pandemic has been an eye opener for many and at the same time created new needs. “The strain that the pandemic has caused for both the organization and for individuals should not be underestimated. The organization’s security protection work has been put to the test in all three domains: physical security, information security and personnel security. For the individual, even their own mental well-being may have changed due to factors such as pandemic restrictions, lock-in effects and the lack of social stimuli or contact with colleagues. This is something that the organization needs to capture early on to minimize risk. ”Pierre believes that part of the solution in the short term is to quickly update the business about the changed situation, gather knowledge and match these insights and risks to the business’ own needs and protection values. . Many businesses that conduct security-sensitive activities have recently contacted us for help with analyzes linked to so-called “blame by association”, threats and risks that can spill over into a business due to external factors. “We get many lecture requests from everything from small companies to authorities. It is expressed that one needs to quickly raise one’s own knowledge linked to both the situation in Europe and gain knowledge about risk countries as well as current topics such as gray area problems, asymmetric threats and insider prevention. ”Pierre concludes that he sees it as positive that the Recently, there has been a greater focus on board level, including in company acquisitions, due to different countries’ short- and long-term goals and agendas. “Different countries’ agendas, goals and loyalties to each other are currently controlling at high speed the development that we in Sweden as a country, as businesses and as individuals to varying degrees need to relate to. For the business, this means that you need to follow these countries and actors to a greater extent. You need to be able to see and identify events here in Sweden and connect them in time and space to the development in the big picture and in this way avoid both being a so-called “useful idiot” and avoid becoming a victim where the business or the individual in different way pays the price. ”More knowledge and inspiration in the subject of personnel safety can be found at sri.se/di The article is produced by Brand Studio in collaboration with SRI and not an article by Dagens industri
