THE CITY AND THE MYTH

Then all the people gave a loud shout and the priests blew the trumpets; and at the sound of trumpets when the people gave a loud shout, the wall of the city collapsed; so every man
charged straight in and took the city.

WHY GERICO

This event, like others from throughout history such as the bypassed Maginot line2, teaches those who deal with Security issues that even the greatest fortifications could be ineffective in the light of underestimated or imponderable events. Risk management and impact mitigation are fundamental activities against negative events endangering business, structures and even the organization’s survival on the grounds that it is not always possible to identify all threats or fully appreciate their actual dangers.
Gerico Security Srl is not aimed at providing Your organization with new and expensive « walls» but acting «beyond the walls» to promptly react and manage unexpected events protecting Your business against economic loss, impacts on image and legal issues.
According to modern and business terms, the above is meant to appropriately analyse and manage the risks and act to keep possible negative effects within acceptable levels ensuring the organization’s business continuity with zero or limited operational and economic loss.

The conquest of Gerico

`{`Joshua 6:1 – 6-:5`}` Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in. Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.”
