Delivery of Security Information on Web site

Crisis Management Unit has developed a comprehensive checklist to determine necessary security measures for each overseas project. With the security checklist, we could take all the necessary measures seamlessly from the very early stage of the project. This system ensures a balanced approach to prepare for adequate security measures based on the conditions of each project site. Additionally, the unit has introduced a rule to review the checklist if necessary as security risks would change with each passing moment.
