Mitigating Security Risk: Jersey City Waterfront Security Meeting

On Tuesday, November 28th, 2006, the Jersey City Waterfront Business Security Meeting focused on Mitigating Security Risk. This group meets monthly and consists of law enforcement, corporate and private security professionals. After opening remarks by Lieutenant Michael Galano of the of Jersey City Police Department, East District, and a review of security concerns peculiar to the holiday season by Officer Dina Reilly, the floor was turned over to Paul DeMatteis, Senior Advisor on Corporate Security Programs for John Jay College of Continuing and Professional Studies.

The presentation provided insight into “connecting the dots;” developing strategies for implementing successful Global Corporate Security programs, such as:
  • Identify the types of risk: Acceptable, Unacceptable, Undetected, Ignored
  • Develop appropriate Security Policies, Standards and Guidelines
  • Determine, understand, and communicate the business implications (such as ROI) of failure to execute these policies
  • Drills, Drills, Drills
  • Organization structure is critical; too many reporting layers will dilute the criticality of Security to Senior Management
  • Understand the pitfalls of why security fails and avoid them
Mr. DeMatteis entertained and informed with examples from his own experience which includes Prudential Financial, Citibank, Republic National Bank, as well as New York City Human Resource Administration.
