They are one of the most significant success factors for today’s businesses. For this reason, there is a rapidly increasing demand for experts at the headquarters of large corporations. Risk management & corporate security specialists are involved in decision-making at the highest levels of management as analysts and consultants. They carry decision-making responsibility not only for security issues, but also for all business issues related to security.
