Leveraging Corporate Security for Business Growth and Improved Performance: The Transformative Effect of 9/11

This Council Perspectives was authored in conjunction with The Conference Board Council of Corporate Security Executives.

To help meet the major challenges identified by the The Conference Board CEO Challenge 2012 survey, security needs to be thought of as a core function, working seamlessly across the organization. CEOs are expecting more from their security functions and chief security officers (CSOs). The security function’s role in the post-9/11 era is now, more than ever, a business one. It is integral to business growth and to meeting critical business challenges, and enlightened business leaders recognize the value of the security function as fundamental to the business process.
This report is based on discussion and presentations during a series of meetings in 2012 involving The Conference Board Council of Corporate Security Executives, The International Security Management Association, and the CSO Roundtable of ASIS International.
