While an ongoing threat assessment programme and comprehensive policies and procedures to address threats should provide you with a high level of security, actual physical security should be evaluated periodically by third party auditors to determine effectiveness and continuing applicability.
To perform our security assessments, we identify multiple security measures that we determine would help a location to protect against the risk of unauthorised access. We base our selection on our expertise in performing security assessments.
We can also measure actual preparedness and performance by testing your security provisions. Simulated intruders, planting suspicious packages and activating the security response system are examples of tests that can determine your preparedness for a real threat. Precautions should be taken to ensure that key personnel are aware of the simulated nature of the exercise.
