Threat Assessment Feedback for Management

The threat response team needs clear expectation of the threat assessment professional, whether internal or external, who does the employee interview. These feedbacks are very different from what might be expected. The report should be brief and to the point. All extraneous information should be limited. This tendency is to explore side issues that distract from the group's focus on developing risk control options. After receiving the data, the group can proceed with the risk option review and the gathering of other information independent of the threat assessment professional needed for organizational decision making. The threat assessors may have accumulated a great deal of data and part of their role is to filter this information down to five key points. Ideally, feedback can be available to the team within thirty minutes of the completion of the interview. The employee is given a chance to respond to each of the points of information before they are given to the threat group.
