Driving Security and Site Selection:
Asset Protection in a Global Corporation
Defining the Risks
Navistar, Inc. (NYSE: NAV) is a holding company whose wholly owned subsidiaries
produce International® brand commercial and military vehicles, MaxxForce® brand
diesel engines, IC Bus brand school and commercial buses and Workhorse® brand chassis
for motor homes and step vans. The company also provides truck and diesel engine
parts, as well as financing services.
As a Senior Regional Security Manager, Terry Lucier is responsible for conducting
vulnerability assessments for all company locations.
Lucier and his team have worked with CAP Index’s CRIMECAST® Reports for five
years. Serving multiple purposes, the reports are utilized for selecting sites,
ranking and comparing locations, and providing an overall risk rating for each Navistar
The department also uses CAP Index’s statistical data to substantiate the need for
various levels of security controls, such as access control and closed-circuit television
Lucier notes that CAP Index data serves as the “last piece of the puzzle” in a comprehensive
formula for developing the crime risk rating of each Navistar facility.
He says, “[CAP Index reports provide] the necessary information to objectively make
decisions on the level of security required for a facility…and if a [location is
deemed too] high risk, security is able to obtain the necessary funding to enhance
security controls [and] protect the workforce and assets of the company.”
