A physical security assessment is a formal examination of your facility’s overall security program. It is a structured process that looks at ALL aspects of physical security and tells you what is working and what could use improvement. Its a proactive approach to security which may identify ways you can save resources / costs.
While it is possible for a security assessment to be done by a in house security personnel, there is great value in having an independent outside security consultant company do it.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, "An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.".
Active shooter situations are unpredictable and many are often over within 10 to 15 minutes. In some cases, the event may be over before law enforcement arrives so its crucial that you are prepared both mentally and physically on how to deal with an active shooter situation should one occur.
Business travel, whether international or domestic, exposes employees to higher levels of risk. Travelers can be put into situations that expose them to a range of health, safety and security hazards. This increased level of risk for travelling employees, heightens the corporate liability of employers that have a legal and moral duty of care to their staff. Faced with the pressure to comply with industry guidelines, legislation, budgets and client expectations, corporate leaders are being urged to take a company-wide and strategic approach to travel risk management.
Many businesses, especially small ones don’t believe that they need an emergency response plan. However, having a plan in place will allow you to quickly get back on your business back up and running and reduce liability in the event disaster strikes.
