Avigilon-Infographic_6-23 FINAL

Forbes Insights Posted This Infographic to Demonstrate The Top Concerns Regarding Your Companies Surveillance

Murphy’s Law has undeniably justified itself throughout time, long before the theory’s official creation in 1866.

“If something can go wrong, it will” – Murphy’s Law.

Author: Matt C.

If you peer back to the infographic, you’ll notice only 4% of companies surveyed in the Forbes Insight’s infographic actively cover the majority of their assets with surveillance. Never known 4% to be such an overwhelming percentage but when it comes to companies assets combined with the theory of Murphy’s Law. That 4% leaves 96% of those companies surveyed, vulnerable to external & internal threats.

That’s quite the combination to have within the mix. To demonstrate the difference between the 4% and 96% we’ve created a two-point scenario. Please try your best to follow along. These are just two examples to symbolize the risk between 100% covered surveillance compared to less than 58% of assets actively monitored.

Scenario 1:

Your company hires a new accounting intern, named George.

George, your companies new intern ‘misplaces’ the approved petty cash for interns.

George unexpectedly doesn’t show up to work the following week. Only to find out through Facebook, he spent that $200 petty cash to help pay for a plane ticket to Barbados.

Conclusion: Murphy’s Law happened, but the risk was not severe. Your company had rules instated, security if you will. That only allowed for intern accountants to have a specific amount of petty cash to work with, 200 dollars.

Scenario 2:

Your companies CEO wins an all expense vacation in the Caribbean.

Your CEO is adventurous by nature and plans to go deep sea diving with sharks while on his/her vacation.

The scuba instructor your CEO entrusted to lead him/her on the risky, adrenaline filled adventure happens to be a jokester by heart.

The Instructor, promises your CEO, that every scuba diver in this part of the Caribbean straps a juicy filet mignon to the tube that connects the oxygen tank to your mouth. The Instructor continues to say,

-“No worries! These sharks are like domesticated dogs that you would find in an average neighborhood in the States!” (Instructor, Scuba).

With no prior knowledge of scuba diving & never seeing the movie Jaws or a Nat Geo documentary. Your companies CEO agrees to the terms and goes deep sea diving with bull sharks in the Caribbean, with a juicy steak attached to his/her oxygen tank.

How it Relates:

It’s two crazy scenarios, we know, but it’s to demonstrate the severities between the two.

  1. The first one shows a minor set back from a delinquent intern. George robs your company of its petty cash. Roughly 200 dollars. Your company can bounce back without any noticeable differences except for an open vacancy where George used to sit.
  2. Providing an extreme risk while shedding light on a particular train of thought. If you are not protecting your assets, your like a deep sea diver swimming with bull sharks while a piece of excellent cut steak sways back and forth from your oxygen tank. The CEO, in scenario two, is meant to represent a valuable asset that negates adequate protection.

The scenarios above were radical examples to provide a humorous side to a grave matter. Take a second and ask yourself these questions:

  1. What percentage of my companies assets are currently vulnerable?
  2. Do bull sharks like steak?

With the scenarios out of the way and your interest has been elevated, let us dive into the meat & bones.
