Many companies in this range may have less formal security departments
and may rely upon outsourcing with higher frequency. IRI consults

with recruiting functional specialists.
Smaller and emerging companies
Many smaller companies face many of the same problems as larger
companies, although perhaps less frequently. Even so, sometimes
certain events can be company threatening. Intellectual property
abuse, stolen trade secrets, and corporate espionage issues are among
the most problematic. Technology companies, working in very sensitive

for example, need to demonstrate sound security measures. IRI assists
smaller companies with preventive planning... and IRI may
act as an outsourced security department for those companies that
ready for a more comprehensive in-house security function.
