Enhance your Personal Safety via Threat Avoidance

Enhance your Personal Safety via Threat Avoidance | Personal Safety and Security | Scoop.it

If you cannot identify or choose to ignore potential threats, your personal safety is more at risk then someone who chooses to assess the world as it is! In the world of threat management and protection there are three ways to handle a threat as it develops form a potential threat to an actual physical attack: threat avoidance, threat mitigation and threat defense. One key to your personal safety is simply to stay ahead of the potential threats and avoid them. You can accomplish this is by simply taking a minute to identify the likely threat you may experience.

Zackary Scott's insight:

Criminals and terrorists do not possess superhuman capabilities. They know what they need to do, and in what order to be successful. They know they have to get everything correct to be successful. Your personal safety is far more dependent on your actions than on that of a predator.
