Law Offices And Finance Companies Receiving Threats

Published March 7, 2012

Desperate financial times for some has contributed to threats made against finance companies and law offices in Iceland being taken more seriously, says a security expert.
A stabbing at a law office that has left its director in critical condition has caught national attention. While the motives of the attacker are at this time still unknown, one security expert says that law offices and finance companies alike are starting to take the threats they’ve been receiving more seriously.
Vísir reports that the attack has apparently caused many companies to review their security policies, for the sake of their employees.
There has been a greater demand for on-site security, whether in the form of security equipment such as video cameras, or actual hired security guards, whether plain-clothes or in uniform. Ómar Örn Jónsson, marketing director for the Security Centre, said that law offices and finance companies are increasingly taking steps to protect their staff.
