Typical measures to get this issue right in one's own organization

What situations are we talking about?

An incident, or escalation from a minor untoward incident to a major incident, resulting from inadequate mapping of safety risks or not having adequate risk management measures in place.

Internal and/or external supervision monitors the state of control of security risks.


  • Setting the business goals to be achieved.

  • Keeping an overview of relevant laws and regulations, of necessary and obtained permits, and of requirements and wishes of other stakeholders.

  • Consciously choosing a risk attitude, appetite and tolerance.

  • Identifying (process) security risks and implementing measures to secure the risks at the chosen maturity level.

  • Monitor the effectiveness of these measures with an agreed measurement methodology and accurate, complete and timely reports.
