EMERGING THREATS AND COUNTER MEASURES 2
Even though am always eager to learn new things, I was a bit skeptical about taking this
course. However, that changed during the first class and has lasted ever since. When the
opportunity presented itself during my residency weekend to learn more about the subject, I was

The second threat is that the premises may be forced to close down in the future as they
were understaffed, and most of the staff were elderly. The staff is a crucial part of an
organization as they offer services to the clients. But the bad news is that in the facility, there
