The Secret to a Comprehensive Security Plan


What is the Challenge?

Comprehensive company security should involve more than just security guards at the entrance and protecting online servers.  A myriad of risks must be mitigated.  These could include the following risks:

  • Physical facility
  • Fraud, embezzlement and theft
  • Environmental
  • Human capital and health
  • Info/intellectual property loss
  • Information and Cybersecurity
  • Product or supply chain risk
  • Regulations and compliance
  • Terrorism
  • Political Instability
  • Natural Disasters

The list has gotten very long in the past couple of decades.  However, there is a risk that is far too often overlooked and is the secret to a complete plan to protect your employees, your facility and your reputation.

Mail Security is the Secret to Comprehensive Organization Security

Your Mailroom or package delivery is the ‘forgotten back door’ that can be easy entry to do harm.


Mitigating mail security threats is a crucial part of a comprehensive security plan and critical to preventing business disruption.


Is Cybersecurity Stealing Your Budget?

Many companies spend their budget on the exciting new thing. In the security industry, that is information security or ‘cybersecurity.’ It’s in headlines daily, and indeed it can harm business operations.

Mail threats harm people. Mail screening isn’t the new kid on the block anymore — SoBran has been screening our clients’ mail for over 17 years. Sometimes executives forget how incredibly important it is…. until it’s too late.

Mail hoaxes cause mental harm, and disruption to business continuity. Actual mail attacks cause physical harm, damaged reputations, all in addition to costly business disruption.

Basic steps for Mailroom Safety include:

1. Provide mailroom security training
2. Put a plan in writing
2. Install correct sensor equipment
3. Train employees
4. Run practice drills

If this is not possible, consider outsourcing mail screening to a third party or sending mail to a third party screening facility.
