I really enjoyed my first TAPA Transported Asset Protection Association conference this week in Boca Raton, Florida.
It was great to connect with and learn from so many amazing supply chain security industry experts. The threats we face securing transportation and supply chains against individuals, states, and organized crime is immense and growing. Thankfully there are dedicated professionals working hard with their companies, across industries and supported by organizations like TAPA and the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CT-PAT) to confront this challenge.
I also picked up a new favourite security expression – “you cannot designate just a corner of your swimming pool a toilet” courtesy of Professor Nikos Passas
I look forward to bringing back these industry leading security best practices to Kirsch Group and embarking on TAPA training in the new year so that we can offer TAPA gap analysis assessments and apply the TAPA standards to the Threat and Risk Assessments we currently offer.
Contact Kirsch group to discuss whether a Threat and Risk Assessment or other security options and surveys are right for your business.
