The corporate rumor mill is as active as Internet news these days. From gossip about company secrets to second-hand reports about office threats, it’s hard to get the honest truth. Rumors about corporate safety and security can put employees on edge. Gossip can also put company leaders in the mode of damage control instead of focusing on moving business forward. Bottom line, “fake news” in the workplace can affect the bottom line by deflating employee moral and confusing leadership. Trying to get at the truth is a daunting task sucking up more resources and wasting valuable employee talent.
One security risk putting business leaders on edge is corporate hacking. News reports about cybercrime, ransomware, Russian hackers, bots and spiders scanning the internet for gaps in website security change every day. Just when company VP’s think their IT team has built a solid wall to protect against cyber criminals, a new report come out. Cyber hackers have found a fresh invention or avenue to infiltrate the system. That means companies are back at square one and on the defense again. That’s no way to run business. We want you to know you can solve security issues and get back to the real work. IMG’s corporate risk assessment experts cut through the gibberish with professional analysis and spot-on consulting.
Corporate Risk Assessment Experts Breaks Through the Bombast
Are you familiar with the popular board game called Balderdash? Sometimes dealing with corporate gossip can be very similar. Players receive weird but true stories and then have to make up their own fake story. The goal is to sway others to believe your fake story and call their bluff. It’s great fun and can impress upon the confusion of what is real and what isn’t. At times, players can clearly believe a story is real even with very little facts to back it up. That can happen in real life too, but in the workplace, corporate security is no game. Our IMG corporate risk assessment experts know what kernels of truth can be found in a lie. Maybe hackers have found a new angle into your company server, but it’s not where you believe it is.
