C-TPAT Threat & Risk Assessments Available

2018-12-06

We have noted a recent increase in requests for assistance with Threat & Risk Assessments as they relate to C-TPAT requirements. Threat assessments are both related to the internal work environment and the surrounding community where the facility is located. A good approach is to use the ISO 9001:2015 Risk Assessment tools and techniques. Pro QC establishs an "Identification of Threats" procedure, then establishes a Threat Assessment template including common & outstanding security risks, and then later categorizes these by Severity - Frequency - Detection, and develop preventive security methods. The steps include: Step 1: Define the scope of the Assessment. Step 2: Define the objective of the Assessment. Step 3: Assign Roles & Responsibilities. Step 4: Define possible risk sources. Step 5: Define grading criteria for Severity-Frequency - Detection. Step 6: Define the potential risks & threats based on the requirements. Step 7: Forward to client. If approved, proceed to Step 8. Step 8: Assign Severity score, Frequency score (if possible link to government statistics), and Detection. Step 9: Submit final report. Step 10: If requested, conduct on-site visit for preventive security measures. Steps 1-6 can be executed in one week. Steps 8-9 usually require one day. Supply chain threats include: Terrorism Narcotics Smuggling Human Smuggling / Trafficking Hijacking / Theft Cyber Crime Political / Social Unrest Natural Disasters Agricultural Threats Contact us for assistance if you receive a letter from Department of Homeland Security, or other notification of this requirement for your supply base. We can help. An example C-TPAT audit report can be found here: https://proqc.com/wp-content/uploads/ProQC_ExampleReport_CTPAT_Security_Audit.pdf
