Thus, recognizing vulnerabilities and solutions arising from geographical instability, as well as new physical, cyber and information security threats, under a single point of governance enables organizations to strengthen their enterprise security postures while also maximizing overall business efficiency. Regional differentiation: The types of security challenges have always varied across African regions and countries and, of course, even within countries. Perhaps the most important driver of violence and conflict in Africa today is weak and unconsolidated governance. CSOs also grapple with the need to demonstrate repeatedly the ROI of increased security costs, regardless of the domain. In Bolivia, the gas resources are in richer eastern areas dominated by elites of European descent that bitterly oppose the government elected by the indigenous majority, and have threatened to secede.

CEOs who empower their CSOs to play a more strategic part in overall enterprise risk management plans and leverage their experience, knowledge, and relationships will fully utilize the convergence framework to create operational efficiencies while reducing organizational risk exposures.

Cyber security managers may make the point that they are best positioned to configure enterprise technology better, and that physical security is only concerned with guards, gates and guns. In spite of unprecedented economic growth and efforts towards establishing peace in a number of countries — the devastating socioeconomic impact caused by previous and ongoing unrest serves as a catalyst for chronic instability in years to come. Terrorism talk in the lead-up to the Games, however, in the midst of an already intensely crime-conscious culture, has led to both citizen alarm and exasperation over what some see as exaggerated threats.

That has been achieved before, in amazing ways during the Reagan years, and there is a long and illuminating earlier history. Jakkie Cilliers of the Institute for Security Studies contends that these problems run much deeper than the mere lack of resources. The countries that have most rigorously observed neoliberal principles, as in Latin America and elsewhere, have experienced a sharp deterioration of macroeconomic indicators as compared with earlier years. Increasingly serious problems with water distribution and population growth will put greater pressure on the need to modernise subsistence agriculture, while climate change effects will aggravate the problems: drought, floods or poor harvests may create new refugee populations and increase strains over shared resources. Noteworthy cases Changes in attitude and corresponding reforms are needed if more accountable governance and professional armies are to take root.
