Workshops to improve workplace preparedness
We partnered with various organisations to equip and train SGSecure representatives to improve workplace preparedness against cyber and physical threats.
Here are what some of our attendees have to say about the seminars.
Business Continuity Planning (BCP)Show
We organised a seminar to equip SGSecure representatives with the knowledge and understanding of BCP.
BCP is the process of creating systems of prevention and recovery to deal with disruption or potential threats to a company. Its goal is also to enable ongoing operations before and during execution of disaster recovery.

With terror threats becoming more prevalent around the world, it is important for companies to remain vigilant against potential threats. In this current day and age, attackers may employ other means of attacks, such as the usage of infectious agents and other biological substances to inflict harm.
It is essential for businesses to stay prepared for such incidents.

Proactive and Systematic Management of Issues and Crisis
It is important to know the difference between issues management and crisis management. Issues management is proactive in nature, and deals with the possibilities of issues that may arise, while crisis management is more reactive.
Importance of Pre-Crisis Communication
You have to identify your crisis management team; create a set of emergency response, and the communication means & protocol. It is also essential to have training and simulation exercises to ensure that your workplace is familiar with the process, and ready when a crisis occurs.
Steps to Consider When Communicating in a Crisis
These are the 8 steps one should consider in a crisis:
- Containment Control Situation
- Gather the Information
- Crisis Central Command
- Communicate Early & Often
- The Media & Social Media
- Communicate Directly with Affected Constituencies
- Continue Business Operations
- Plan for Recovery
Share the presentation on crisis communications with your colleagues.
