Duty of care when providing advice on security risks
Giving advice on security risks involves the performance of duties to a reasonable standard of care. "Reasonable" generally means meeting a standard of care expected of a reasonably prudent security professional.
The issue of providing advice is coming under more scrutiny across Australian jurisdictions. Holding a security adviser registration/licence may not be enough.
There are now a number of authorities that have arisen from cases across Australia hence the importance of appropriate advice that is provided in a clear and unambiguous manner.
On 29 September 2020 our Chapter Chair (Dr Tony Zalewski) is conducting an online seminar through the ACT ASIS Chapter.
