Wall Street Journal Interviews TorchStone Expert After YouTube Shooting
The Morning Risk Report, a column of the Journal’s Risk & Compliance section, reached out to TorchStone after the recent tragic YouTube campus event.
“Companies looking to evaluate their physical security programs after Tuesday’s shooting at the YouTube office campus in San Bruno, Calif., need to consider one main factor when considering the level of protection they want to put in place,” said reporter Ben DiPietro. “How much risk will they tolerate?”
“Mark Lex, Senior Vice President at TorchStone, a risk mitigation and security company, said security should be a topic boards discuss when considering operational risks. Forward-thinking companies put in place a crisis-management plan that involves expertise from all parts of the company and outside advisors as needed “to really examine risk and to make appropriate mitigation plans,” he said. A solid mitigation plan could place the organization in a better defensible position from a litigation standpoint if something does happen, he said.”
