Industry Risk is pleased to welcome security industry veteran, SCEC Security Zone Consultant and long-time ASIS International Australia Region volunteer security leader Mark Jarratt CPP. Mark is the only SCEC Zone Consultant in Australia with a direct background in leading security for a Government Agency.
Industry Risk Pty Ltd, an Australian security and business resilience consultancy servicing both private and government clientele, recently announced the appointment of Mark Jarratt CPP, to a senior leadership role.
The successful recruitment of Jarratt is a major coup for the company, which is in the process of expansion after the success of its widely-acclaimed SaaS security risk management platform, SECTARA.
The company’s Managing Director, Konrad Buczynski, CPRM, stated “Mark’s acceptance in joining us is a major win for the team, as we grow our business by focusing on specific areas of expertise. His background and impressive reputation as a SCEC Security Zone Consultant in particular, makes him the perfect fit for our brand”.
“Mark is the only SCEC Consultant in Australia with direct experience in leading security for a Government Agency, and his instincts for appreciating client needs are unparalleled. As far as we are concerned, he may as well have written the book on SCEC – his encyclopaedic appreciation for technical specifications and adjudicating compliant asset protection alternatives is just that good”, Konrad said.
Mark’s philosophies around genuinely ‘integrated’ security management arrangements are well known through his significant contributions to ASIS International over the last 25 years.
“The overall effectiveness of protective security is only as strong as the weakest link. Security arrangements for organisations must therefore be based upon objective risk-based analysis, which recognise issues such as convergence, so that cost-effective countermeasures can be implemented to holistically protect assets” Jarratt states.
Mark brings with him an extended network of senior contacts, in both security and other industries. His role will be Canberra-based and he will assume the role of Regional Manager for Industry Risk, working from its local office. He will join the senior leadership team, which also includes Geoffrey D. Askew, AM, Julian Talbot, ASM, and Peter Collier, in helping the company to achieve significant additional growth throughout 2020 and beyond.
