KEEP YOUR SENSITIVE MEETINGS SECURE

Protecting meeting privacy, maintaining confidentiality, and keeping company secrets is the Merit Security forte. There are many facets to meeting security; guards, access controls, badging, etc. Maintaining confidentiality at corporate meetings is a prime concern for corporate executives and thus is a prime concern for planners; as recent media attention has illustrated.

Meeting privacy was breached at several high profile events in the past years. A Mitt Romney’s fundraiser was surreptitiously recorded and posted on YouTube. Some believe that may have cost him the election. Imagine the same happening to your meeting or executive. Many incidents are not documented or publicized; often because the incident was never detected but also because the company does not want negative publicity. Merit Security can eliminate or mitigate these risks.

Proprietary information is certainly salaries, benefits, personal information, customer pricing, R&D, legal issues, etc. Discussion of these topics typically takes place in meetings. Other information should also be considered sensitive and proprietary: travel arrangements, marketing plans, advertising strategies and production processes.

Information gathering and social engineering techniques can acquire small bits of information that assemble into the big picture or, better the position of a competitor’s negotiation. A variety of clandestine devices are used to glean proprietary information at offsite meetings, hotels, business forums, corporate events, social gatherings, and executive residences as they are most prone to information loss. The loss of sensitive information could cost a considerable amount in lost business, reputation, or negative publicity, not to mention potential legal ramifications and fiduciary responsibility.

Microphones can be extremely vulnerable to eavesdropping. Merit Security has methods to protect your wireless communications. Demonstrate your awareness of privacy issues and provide decisive action against threats. Your clients will appreciate protective services and value your concern regarding potential threats to privacy.

Merit provides services that transparently safeguard meeting privacy with no adverse effects on systems, clients or attendees. While corporate locations have significant security controls in place, this is not necessarily the case at convention centers and hotels where you do not totally control access to the rooms, social spaces, electronic equipment, wiring, etc.
