Successful global organisations aim to achieve consistency and standardisation of products and services. Their security programmes need to strive for similar consistency and standardisation to support business units across a variety of environments with a variety of local contexts, cultures and expectations; quality of local labour, means of communicating and enforcing policies to diverse locations; the complexities of achieving standardisation and in a different way unity of purpose; and dealing with the intricacies of organisational alignment, to name but a few.

- What are the key requirements of a strategy for consistent and good security across territories?
