The acquistion of security services by companies is often undertaken with limited market or product knowledge and tailored to address specific threats or perceived concerns. The utilisation of security consultancy services can provide a client with most, if not all, of the following activities:
Threat and risk assessment
Review of potential physical security threats that a business may face, the impact of these threats and the potential to occur.
The holistic design of control measures that compliment client business operation to address the protection of people, buildings, assets and reputation.
The development of detailed specification for the tender of control measure installation either as standalone or as part of a larger project. This also involves the technical review of returns and recommendation of compliant service suppliers
Oversight of the implementation of security controls as part of a project or the procurement of services.
Post implementation audit of the controls to ensure installation objectives set out in strategy have been achieved together with operational functionality
Security policy development
The development of security policies, procedures and infrastructure to support the risk assessment process together with associated deployment of controls
Management and training
Support and guidance to assist the security management processes
Security consultancies provide independent professional support to ensure that measures required by clients correspond to both existing and emerging threats whilst complimenting the client's business environment and operation.
