CPNI guide offers template for effective risk management
Written by staff reporter
Pool Re is partnering with the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) to raise awareness of government-led risk management advice for businesses.
The CPNI, the UK government authority for providing security advice to the UK national infrastructure, has published the Passport to Good Security, a best practice guide for senior executives to help create an effective risk management strategy, which Pool Re considers a valuable tool for risk management and insurance professionals working to improve the resilience of businesses against domestic and international terror threats.
Steve Coates, chief underwriting officer at Pool Re, said: “The terrorist threat is becoming ever more diffuse and complex. As a result, robust security and risk management practices have never been more important to business. A central part of Pool Re’s role is working with its Members, Government and the insurance market to promote good risk management practice and we are pleased we will have the opportunity at BIBA to draw attention to the valuable tools the government has to offer.”
The CPNI website (www.cpni.gov.uk) contains a range of publications and expert advice that helps keep organisations secure.
CPNI also works closely with the National Cyber Security Centre (www.ncsc.gov.uk) which provides cyber security advice.
