As multinationals globalize their security practices, they face a world fragmented with different regulations, cultures and standards. Still, the reasons to do so are compelling. A globalized approach brings greater consistency and simplicity, not to mention improved safety, security and business efficiencies. Despite the rapid globalization of business over the past 30 years, the globalization of security operations has lagged far behind. Many multinational corporations have left these responsibilities up to their local domestic companies because a myriad of building compliance codes — both in-country and from country-to-country — along with regional technical solutions have made managing security on a global scale difficult if not nearly impossible. But that situation is changing fast. Now more and more multinational corporations are taking a global approach for a number of reasons. They are looking for third-party partners with the necessary knowledge, experience and resources. Amidst all the complexities of the task ahead of them, they seek to develop a global service delivery platform with greater consistency and simplicity, both excellent guiding principles for their efforts. Multinational corporations are moving toward a more global approach for their security investments and operations.
