CLIO for Threat Management

Threats to companies can take many forms. Some are clearly major threats that endanger lives, safety or business as usual. Others may seem minor but have the scope to grow and escalate until they become a major crisis that can cause severe it not fatal implications for your company.

Therefore, it is important to recognise any threat immediately and to launch an incident response so that the appropriate team can collaborate to manage and neutralise the threat. This gives you a much better chance to either resolve matters quickly or to reduce the overall impact of the threat.

What constitutes a threat largely depends on the industry you operate in, your customer case, what you do and many other factors that may be totally unpredictable.

Threats can encompass:

Internal threats

  • Employee negligence
  • Deliberate employee malice
  • Threats created by poor procedures or processes

Criminal threats

  • Extortion
  • Robbery
  • Hostage taking
  • Revenge


  • IT failures
  • Supply chain
  • Product issues


  • Trade union disputes
  • Politically inspired actions


  • Litigation
  • Compliance


  • Weather
  • Natural disaster


  • Direct
  • Indirect

Cyber threats

  • Security attacks
  • Denial of Service

CLIO provides a dynamic environment through being a flexible software solution that meets the requirements of any size company. It will allow you to implement a set of planned responses to any type of threat and imposes a structured, policy driven response when a threat of any kind is deemed to be targeting your company.

Using CLIO means that the most appropriate personnel and resources are brought together in a real-time and collaborative environment so you can respond to and manage the threat. This can involve operational, security, technical, legal, PR and any other department that needs to be involved. It also allows senior executives to be aware and up to date with what is happening and able to intervene or respond with authority and current up to date knowledge.

This way threats are not allowed to grow or spread and become more serious than they should be. Threats can be managed and nullified or, should they develop, you can minimise the impact on your business and control the situation rather than end up being controlled by it.
