Increased use of multi-layered security threat plans: Organizations are using more layers of security as part of their overall security plan. This includes overt measures such as visible guards, police details, closed circuit TV (CCTV), turnstiles, bollards and personnel screening equipment, and less obvious measures such as increased use of intelligence, coordination with local, state and federal law enforcement, and social media analysis to identify local threats. These plans will create layers of security that address and protect along four different capabilities: people, technology, intelligence, and process/protocols.

Technology as a security enhancement for guards: Security guards are the backbone of most physical security plans; however, it can get expensive as the guard force grows. Technology can be used to augment the guard force and provide them with tools that can increase their effectiveness.




Threat, Risk & Vulnerability Assessments


The first step in a threat & risk management program is an assessment. The assessment considers the full spectrum of threats & risk (i.e., natural, criminal, terrorist, accidental, etc.) for a given facility/location. The assessment should examine supporting information to evaluate the relative likelihood of occurrence for each threat.


Once the threats & risk are identified, we will provide a vulnerability assessment. The vulnerability assessment considers the type of target and potential impact of loss from a successful attack as well as the vulnerability of the facility/location to an attack. Threat, Risk, & Vulnerability Assessments are important for all facilities in 2019 who want to fully protect staff and visitors.
