Our Purpose

What IS

The Business
of Security

What does CSA’s tagline, ‘The Business of Security’ mean? You could interpret this as ‘CSA is in the business of security’, and while that is accurate, the more important meaning is how CSA assists their clients to develop a business oriented approach, identifying and focusing on needed Security services and enhancements that mitigate risk and also demonstrably contribute to the corporation’s business strategy or bottom line, or both.

Executive leaders often think of Security as an operational necessity, like snow removal, landscaping, or food service. These services incur expense but don’t necessarily contribute to the organization’s business outcomes. From this perspective, every dollar spent on Security is a dollar not available to advance the business goals. Companies therefore often seek base level Security at minimal cost, with no thought of business value and no further investment in the function.

CSA addresses this approach to Security by interacting with senior business leaders, identifying and recommending investment in security mitigation strategies that align with corporate culture and contribute to the companies’ overall business goals. In an iterative process, we develop multiple proposal variations with Security leadership and executive officers, seeking to balance the business needs and risk mitigation with a multi-year security business plan that is financially sound and that executive leadership supports.
