The emerging turf battle between information and physical security pros

Stacy Collett | Nov. 1, 2013
As security threats increasingly cross role boundaries, information and physical security pros struggle to get along, so what are the best practices for uniting both teams under a common goal?

Professionals who are already employed and looking to bridge the security gap inside their own company are advised to know the business. "Use risk and risk mitigation as your common platform for discussion, and understand your management team and what they're asking for," Williams says. "Better yet, write a strategy together on how you're going to mitigate those risks. If you learn to carry out each other's agenda, not only does that show commonality, it also shows collaboration."

If convergence is inevitable, Williams says, "the person who will take over will be the one who can articulate the risks to senior management in a way that they can clearly see the business imperative."
